Prep Time 10 min Serves 2 cups     adjust servings


  • 2 cups white beans (We use dried beans and soak them overnight and then boil them in the morning until they are soft. About 20 minutes.)
  • 10 leaves of basil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 T nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 T dried parsley

  1. Throw everything in the food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it. Easy huh?


Recipe Notes

You can use this recipe as a dip, or as a sandwich spread. Today I spread some of it on whole wheat lavash bread with some cucumbers and red peppers. It was yummy! It would also make a good pasta pesto sauce too. I hope you enjoy it.
