Vegan Homemade Pesto in a Blender

  • Author: thehungrywaitress
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


Here is a lighter (and cheaper) version of this summer classic.


  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 cup basil
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts (feel free to use all almonds if you don't have pine nuts around)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth


Throw all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth.


If you would like a richer pesto substitute more oil for the broth.

  • Prep Time: 5 min
