Quick and easy vegan pasta salad with basil pesto.

Ingredients

  • 200g of pasta (spiral shape is the best)

  • 50g of cocktail tomatoes

  • Bunch of fresh basil leaves

  • 2 tablespoons of pine nuts

  • 2 tablespoons of fast VeGaN parmesan (you can find the recipe here)

  • Olive oil

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 1 lemon

  • Salt & pepper

Directions

  • Cook the pasta according to the instruction on the package. Drain and place back into the pot.
  • Place the fresh basil leaves, 1 tablespoon of pine nuts, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a blender or food processor. Blend on high speed until the basil is completely mixed. Add 2 tablespoons of VeGaN parmesan and another tablespoon of olive oil and blend for another 1 minute. Squeeze in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, season with a pinch of salt, and blend again. In case your pesto is very thick you can lose it by adding another tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Once your pasta is ready add the pesto, and halved cocktail tomatoes to the pot and mix well with a spoon.
  • Heat up a small pan and dry roast the pine nuts. Do not add any additional oil.
  • Serve the pasta with vegan parmesan and roasted pine nuts on top.
  • Enjoy 🙂
