Basil Almond Pesto Sauce

Basil Almond Pesto Sauce The other day, I was lucky enough to receive a house gift of a quart bag filled with a variety of basil sprigs. I made this vegan pesto sauce and served it with pasta for a delicious, fresh treat!

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.


  • 4 c basil sprigs
  • 1/2 c slivered, unsalted almonds
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tsp vegan chicken style broth mix
  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 1/2 c water
  • salt, if needed


  1. Remove any thick stems from the basil. Place it in a food processor with the almonds. Pulse until finely chopped, stopping to scrape sides, as necessary.
  2. Add garlic and broth mix; pulse to mix in.
  3. Place the olive oil and water in a measuring cup and, while running processor slowly, stream it in through the top opening while blending to the desired consistency. Refrigerate until served.
