Vegan Pesto

Incredibly quick and very versatile, this pesto is a light dairy free version of the delicious usual version. When I discovered the recipe for fresh pesto, I became curious if it would still taste ok without the parmesan, since I am very sensitive to lactose. It turns out you don’t even miss it one bit.
