You can whip up this healthy pesto in just minutes. I added spinach to mine, but kale or chard will work too. No need for dairy and oil in this recipe.
I added the nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor, but it actually will give you a nice dose of B vitamins too! This dairy free pesto recipe is vegan, gluten free and grain free!
You can keep it paleo, but omitting the yeast. If you are wondering what the heck nutritional yeast is, check out this post.
