Vegan Pesto with Farfalle Pasta step by step

  1. For pesto- In a food processor, pulse the garlic, 2 Tbsp. pine nuts (set aside the rest to be used as a garnish), lemon juice, and basil leaves ..
  2. While the food processor is running, if possible, carefully and slowly drizzle in the olive oil. The goal here is to create a smooth emulsion. Occasionally, you might have to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl ..
  3. Season with salt and pepper..
  4. If you are not going to use all of the pesto, then you can freeze it for up to 3 months in an airtight container..

  8. Garnish with basil before serving..
  9. NOTES – Leftover pesto can be frozen. I like to use it as a spread on my toast – If you do not have access to pine nuts, you can always use walnuts or pistachios – Skip the nuts, to make _pistou_ instead..
