Prep Time5 mins
Servings2 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet red peppers
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup roasted almonds
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • 1. Using a heavy skillet heat the almonds over medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes until they begin to brown and give off a rich and tasty fragrance. Still and toss regularly as they can burn very quickly so you’ll need to keep a close eye on them throughout.
  • 2. Remove them from the pan to cool, then add them to a food process to blitz into little pieces.
  • 3. Add the peppers to a preheated over at 450 F 230 C for 25 minutes. Once roasted, let the peppers cool and then peel the skins off.
  • 4. Place all ingredients into a food processor until you reach your desired pesto consistency.
