Edamame Pesto (V) (GF)

edamame pestoProtein packed pesto with a punch? Yes, please! I am absolutely obsessed with pesto and I have a penchant for downing edamame more than  the average folk.

This type of pesto is a little thicker than traditional pesto and is perfect as a sauce, dip or sandwich spread. I am sure there are more uses for it – get creative! Here is the recipe:

the ingredients:

  • 14 oz package of frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 cup basil leaves, packed (more to taste)
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 T nutritional yeast (optional, but recommended for that cheesy flavor)
  • 1 t – 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 t salt
  • oregano, cilantro or any other spices you desire :)

the method:

Put the liquid in the food processor first and then add the other ingredients, blending until smooth. Serve over pasta, pizza, or any other dish you want!
