While basil and pine nuts are the traditional pesto ingredients, this version features a new twist.  I put parsley in everything I can, its my favorite herb for sure!  Adding parsley AND basil to this pesto really kicks it up a notch.

This Vegan Avocado Parsley Pesto has a great texture and flavor combination.  The fresh herbs brighten the flavor.  The avocado and olive oil give the pesto a silky texture.  And the lemon juice, fresh garlic, and red pepper flakes give this pesto a kick!

One of the BEST Low Sodium Vegetarian Recipes

This is an amazing low sodium condiment – I stir it into all kinds of dishes instead of using salt.  The herbs add a ton of bright and fresh flavor to any dish. I would recommend putting a scoop into soup or risotto to give great flavor without the salt!  Or toss with pasta to make a classic low sodium pesto pasta.   Or add a scoop to low sodium bread for a simple and easy garlic bread.  The possibilities are endless!

  • Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.
  • If pesto is too thick or gets stuck while blending, add the water 1/4 cup at a time until it loosens into a thinner consistency.
  • Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container (or freeze) until ready to use.  Should last about 4 days in the fridge.


This pesto is awesome to freeze for later.  I love to double the recipe and have a few extra jars in the freezer for easy weeknight meals!  I stir the pesto into Pasta or into Risotto, its an awesome low sodium addition to any dish.
