Are you allergic to nuts? Aren't you crazy about basil pesto? Try this broccoli pesto and you will remember me.


I personally love it in pizza(see here)but also with spaghetti or noodles.

This broccoli pesto can fool even those who do not like broccoli as much as they certainly do not feel it when eating it. It is light, it is very easy and it is very very tasty.


The basic ingredients to make it are:

broccoli, basil


nutritional yeast

olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest

salt and black pepper
