Recipe Card


  • 1 cups basil
  • 1 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, unpasteurized
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Step 1

    Combine all pesto ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix and blend to combine. I puree mine for at least 30 seconds for a nice smooth consistency.

  • Step 2

    Taste and season with salt as necessary. Serve on pasta, zucchini noodles, on a quinoa Buddha Bowl, or as a sandwich spread.

  • Step 3

    Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Cover the pesto with additional olive oil to prevent browning.
