Cashew Basil Pesto + Greek Dressing

I fear that my body is eventually going to tell cashews to (ca)shoo and go away since I’ve been consuming them in such massive amounts lately. But when they make the perfect base for bites, balls, sauces and spreads, I’m gonna just keep rolling with it – literally and figuratively. Like in this cashew basil pesto. Recipe below!

Grab this:


  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of pepper

Do this:

  1. Blend in food processor until smooth!
  2. That’s it!!!!!
  3. Use for dips or pizza crust sauce!
