Pine nut Pesto
  • 40 g pine nuts
  • 30 g fresh basil
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and crushed
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 juice of half a lemon
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in the brussels sprouts and cook them for 8 minutes until they start to soften slightly. Drain them and add them to a large baking tray, drizzle with the oil and salt. Give the tray a shake so the sprouts are coated in the oil. Roast in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes until cooked.
  • In the meantime make the pesto. Simply add all the ingredients to a food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy. Add a dash of water if needed. Remove the brussel sprouts from the oven and mix trough the pesto. Serve with a sprinkle of extra nuts or chopped pistachios and a crack of black pepper.
