This nearly raw* dish is seriously satisfying and has great flavors! This recipe serves 3-4 people depending on portion size.
2 Large Zucchini (peeled and sliced into “noodles”)
1 Cup Soaked Raw Cashews
1 Cup Fresh Basil leaves
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
3 Cloves Garlic
3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/4-1/2 Cup water (depending on the consistency you want)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients except for the zucchini in a blender or food processor until thoroughly combined and creamy. Take 1/3-1/2 Cup of the pesto and toss it in your portion of zucchini noodles. It’s that easy!
*I say nearly because nutritional yeast is considered “dead”, and that is an ingredient in the pesto but can be omitted.
