Nut-Free Vegan Pesto

Nut-Free Vegan Pesto Recipe with Hidden Greens

Share

We like our pesto how we like our supplements: organic, minimal ingredients, and allergen-free.

Unfortunately, we found that many store-bought pestos are either not vegan-friendly or contain some questionable ingredients, such as “basil flavoring.” Last time we checked organic basil leaves have plenty of flavor and add a fresh, delicious taste to any recipe–like this one!

All you need is a handful of your favorite greens, a few pantry staples, and a blender or food processor.

We opted for equal parts spinach and kale, then took it next level with a scoop of our organic greens superfood powder. Olive oil and coconut milk add in a dose of healthy fats to boost your brain power, plus make this dip addictingly creamy!

Create

  • 4 cups of your favorite organic greens (spinach, kale, arugula)⁣
  • 1 bunch of organic basil
  • ½ can full-fat coconut milk⁣
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 scoop Ora Organic superfood greens powder
  • 1 tsp pepper⁣
  • Salt to taste⁣
  • Your favorite vehicle for dipping (we went with our favorite, Simple Mills almond crackers)

ORA TIP: Add in extra olive oil or water to make the dip thinner and use as a sauce for pasta or drizzling over roasted veggies.
