Ingredients

  • 2 medium red beets, cooked or roasted coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (or pine nuts), toasted
  • 1/3 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except for the oil to a food processor or blender and pulse several times.
  2. Leaving the food processor (or blender) running, slowly add the olive oil until all ingredients are well combined. If the pesto is too thick for your blender to process, add a small amount of water until you have a smooth pesto-like sauce.
  3. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper.
