Oil-Free White Bean Pesto

Updated: Jan 17, 2019

Oil Free Vegan Pesto

This new year has brought new germs into my home and I am dying of some serious Canadian cold! That means quick and easy dinners are in order, and this one happens to be protein rich and super yummy! Plus it’s oil and dairy free! This is how we made it:


1 can (15 oz) white beans, drained and rinsed

2 cups packed basil

3 cloves garlic

¼ cup nutritional yeast

Juice of half a lemon

1 tsp salt

2-4 tbsp water

Pepper to taste


In a food processor, add the beans, basil, garlic, nutritional yeast, lemon, salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Blend until relatively smooth, and then gradually add the water until you reach your desired consistency.

Add your pesto to pasta, pizza, or use it as a dip for veggies, gluten free crackers, etc.
