Easy Vegan Pesto Sauce Recipe

The Vegan Pesto Sauce That Will Pimp Your Pasta

Pasta is all fun, games and sweet Italian dreams until you literally turn into a carbohydrate or become 90 percent Parmesan cheese.

But if you still want to get your pasta fix whilst ticking a few extra 'health boxes', we've found a recipe that's the perfect solution for transforming your favourite pesto sauce into an entirely vegan and dairy-free dish.

Bonus, this recipe also works just as well when paired with vegetable noodles (here's our guide to cooking perfect zucchini noodles), just in case you want to go the extra mile.
