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.

- 140 g of fresh basil leaves
- 90 g of raw cashews or other nuts or seeds such as sunflower seeds
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons of yeast flakes (this tastes best)
- 1 tbsp light miso paste
- 8 tablespoons water or more depending on how liquid you want it
- Salt and pepper to taste
- First, add the cashews and water to a high speed blender (food processor or blender) and mix until creamy.
- For the Vegan Pesto Sauce add all the remaining ingredients and mix again vigorously until the basil has reached the desired size.
- * I like to make a larger amount and freeze a portion of the Vegan Pesto Sauce in little portions.
