Pesto, pesto, easy vegan pesto that is so good, I don’t know why people make it any other way! I am regularly told that pesto is usually vegan. Nope, it’s not. Pesto is “usually” made with loads of Parmesan cheese. Now that we are all on the same page, this plant-based pesto is amazing. It’s made with basil and spinach for added veggies and nutrients baby! You can use this vegan pesto as a dip, spread or dressing. It’s so versatile that your other condiments might get jealous.
