The combination of smoked almonds, pistachios and green tea gives a depth of flavor that cheese would normally provide, making this a great vegan condiment for pasta or crostini. Freeze leftovers in an ice cube tray and store for up to one month.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add the basil, almonds, pistachios, tea, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon salt and lemon zest to a food processor. Cover and pulse a few times.
  2. Drizzle in the oil while pureeing; continue to process until the mixture makes a coarse pesto. Add salt to taste.
