Vegan Oil-Free Pesto

Yesterday I was in the middle of making my homemade vegan oil-free pesto when it hit me…
I haven’t even shared it with you guys yet…

Like… I assumed I had because this recipe is everything.

It is:

dairy-free, oil-free AND diet friendly.

I use it ALL the time.

Vegan Oil-Free Pesto

vegan oil-free pesto


  • 1 cup diced Zucchini
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves { I usually throw in a little more cause I <3 Basil }
  • 4 garlic gloves minced
  • 1/2 cup raw walnut pieces or raw hazelnuts { your preference }
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt { or to taste }


  1. Literally toss all the ingredients into a food processor and blend!! DONE.

At this point I either add it to whatever pasta, spaghetti squash, meat or veggie dish I’m cooking { LITERALLY it tastes good with anything }


freeze the pesto in ice cube trays. Once frozen I pop out the cubes, toss them in a ziploc bag and I have ready to go, pre portioned pesto whenever I need it.

Alright, now I’m so happy you finally have that recipe.

Happy blending!
