Basil & Cashew Pesto (WF, GF, DF, EF)

Posted on 22/01/2015 by Healthwise Clinic

This dairy free Pesto is moorish as a dip, tossed through pasta or as a salad dressing. Alternatively you can use coriander instead of basil, or try using almonds, walnuts or pine nuts instead of cashew.

Basil Pesto


  • 1 large bunch of fresh basil (125gm)
  • 1/2 cup of oil
  • 1 cup of raw cashew nuts 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 2 cloves of Garlic


  1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor or stick blender, mix until smooth paste, or you can have it a little more chunky with nuts and leaves throughout.
  2. You can add a little water or oil to fix the consistence to your liking.
