Super Simple Creamy Vegan Pesto

I was craving something creamy and fresh last night and I whipped up this vegan version of a creamy pesto sauce. It was yummy and super simple! Let me know what you think...

Super Simple Creamy Vegan Pesto

A large bunch of fresh basil, washed
2 cloves of garlic
About 6 tablespoons of walnuts
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
8 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons of vegan sour cream
2 tablespoons of vegan parmesan “cheese”

Process the first 5 ingredients in a food processor until creamy. Add the last 3 ingredients and continue processing until blended. Serve as a sauce over warm pasta, as a dip for veggies (especially tomatoes!) or as a spread for sandwiches or crackers.
