Red Pepper Hemp Pesto

Red Pepper Hemp Pesto: this is based on Brendan Frazier’s from his book “Thrive” – a great book for a vegan athlete!

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored and seeded
  • 1/2 c. fresh basil
  • 2 T. hemp seeds
  • 2. T. hemp seed oil
  • 2 T. nutritional yeast
  • 2 T. sesame seeds

Blend all ingredients until sauce-like.  I like mine a little chunky.  This can be used as a sauce over pasta, if you eat pasta instead of tomato sauce, you can dip raw veggies like sliced cucumber, or zucchini crisps.  You can dip baked fries in it instead of ketchup or use sprouted whole grain pitas and use this in place of tomato sauce, sprinkle with onion, mushrooms – whatever your favorite veggies are –  and top with a small amount of almond cheese, if you use those types of products for a spin on pizza.  I keep this in fridge all the time
