Can we talk about this pesto for a second?

The pesto of all the pesto dreams, this Super Antioxidant Cashew Pesto was a creation that we whipped up using Veggie Pucks and we’re now so obsessed with it, we are deliberately creating meals that have a pesto element to it, just so we have an excuse to eat this pesto.

The most amazing thing about this pesto though, is the fact that you wouldn’t know there are 5 servings of green vegetables in it, the liver loving and supporting ones as well. One green puck consists of: spinach, kale, collards, dandelion greens and parsley! What?! How can you get more whole food nutrition into one recipe, really though? Use promo code ‘naughty10’ for $10 off your first Veggie Puck order.

Because we know not everyone has access to veggie pucks (as they’re a Canadian based company), we’ve put a substitution in this recipe for those of you who want to add the antioxidant and supreme green element to the pesto.

We also decided that pine nuts were wayyyyyyy too expensive for this pesto habit, so we swapped them out with cashews, but feel free to use pine nuts, walnuts or whatever nut your heart desires!

THIS PESTO CONTAINS:

 

  • Antioxidant rich green vegetables
  • No dairy (you’d never guess it’s vegan though)
  • Healthy fats
  • The perfect pasta, salad, bread/ cracker addition

 

This Super Antioxidant Cashew Pesto makes the perfect (and we mean melt in your mouth perfect) sauce for this 2 Ingredient Butternut Squash Gnocchi Pasta.
