Want to pump up the protein factor in pesto? Make it with hemp seeds instead of pine nuts. Add a dreamy cashew cream to it, toss it with some grape tomatoes and mix in some pasta. This is also great on a roasted veggie panini or sandwich.

Ingredients

For the Cashew Cream:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup water

For the Pesto:

  • 2 cups fresh basil, packed
  • 1/3 cup hemp seeds

To Make the Cashew Cream:

  1. Blend cashews and water in a high speed blender. I used a Vita-Mix which will help get it ultra smooth.

  2. Stir in cashew cream.
