Homemade Rucola/Rocket-Cashew-Pesto (vegan)

I got this wonderful machine for christmas, which allows me to make a lot of great new things…

… and between others it allowed me to start my pesto-creation-carreer ­čÖé

The first pesto I want  to share with you is this Rucola-Cashew-Pesto

You need

Two big handfull of Rucola
Two small handfull of Cashew nuts
A spoon full of tomatoe paste
Two spoons full of yeast flakes
Olive oil (or other oil… I used some olive oil and some walnut oil)

And then just put everything together in the mixer or whatever machine you have until you have a nice paste. Add as much oil until you have the consistency you like ­čÖé

The pesto tastes great on bread, with pasta or rice or veggies or or or ….

Just try! Its really easy and its soooo good! I love it and I think its better than ketchup to pimp up any kinda boring meal.

Let me know if you tried it and how you liked it!
And hey, what is your favorite pesto anyway? I’m completly in the pesto mood right now and I would love to try out more new ideas, so if you have any please let me know!

    Hello Larissa! Happy New Year!! I too took a break from blogging too many things to do and hardly any free time.
    The pesto looks delicious!! I have only tried the traditional one, and I must confess that I don┬┤t make it myself, I buy the ready made stuff (I usually make all of my own sauces, but pesto looked complicated, now I see that it really isn┬┤t!).
    Have a lovely weekend!

    I've never made pesto by hand before, so it's interesting to see that we can use nuts and that things like yeast is required. I commend you for your cooking skills (and the photography is beautiful)!
