Where does the cheese flavor in the vegan pesto sauce come from?

This vegan pesto sauce without cheese tastes surprisingly like the original. Are you wondering how I did it? The “secret ingredient” is actually quite simple: nutritional yeast (you get here) and light fermented miso paste (you get here, for a soy free version just leave the fermented product out, but it is giving the final whistle) and the main ingredient in pesto is clearly basil and of course we can use this without any problems. Here, access fresh and not dried basil to get the delicious, fresh basil flavor in the vegan pesto sauce.

    Oh I love pesto. Miso sounds like a brilliant addition to it as well. I will definitely this next time I want pesto.

    What a lovely oil-free, dairy-free alternative to traditional pesto! White miso is one of my all-time favourite secret ingredients. I often use it in sauces, marinades and vegan cheeses as it adds a beautiful hint of savouriness and depth of flavour. I can just imagine that it would bring the same qualities to a pesto. Excited to give it a try! :o)

    By the way, I’m so intrigued to find out what the food is in your photos…. it’s such an interesting shape! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like that before! Is it pasta… or a vegetable?

      Thank you Lauren for the compliment. Who says oilfree pesto has to be complicated 🙂
