  • Author: Gianna Nebbia
  • Total Time: 20
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


An intensely flavorful vegan pesto that goes well with practically anything, including seafood, meat, noodles, potatoes, sandwiches, rice, beans... am I forgetting something?


  • 1 bunch of herbs; half basil and half mint.
  • 1/6 cup wasabi peas
  • 1/6 cup pistachio nuts (fill a 1/3 measuring cup half way with wasabi peas and half way with pistachios)
  • The juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 oz nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 2 Tb sesame oil


  1. Place the first 7 ingredients into a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  2. Switch the food processor to low and slowly stream in the sesame oil and olive.
  3. Switch the food processor to high for another 30s.
