Cashew Hemp Seed Pesto

This Cashew Hemp Seed Pesto is creamy, easy to make, and so versatile! I used it as a polenta topper here-- by using a little less water I made it more like a spread. It works great as a sauce for noodles and veggies too!

I've really gotten into hemp seeds lately. They're a complete protein with all essential amino acids and a good source of omega-3's. Between the hemp seeds and cashews, this pesto packs some protein!

Cashew Hemp Seed Pesto

Serves about 4

  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds/hemp hearts
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2-3/4 cup water, depending on desired consistency
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Enjoy!
