This recipe works perfectly for those who are raw vegan, since you can substitute regular pasta and make zucchini pasta instead if you wish. Even if you do not eat raw you should try this out, because it really tastes good without being too heavy. Next time I think I will use my roasted zucchini pesto recipe instead, which can be found here.
Blend all the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor/blender until smooth, while cooking the pasta according to the package. To give it a “prettier” appearance you should peel the zucchini, but it is not necessary.
- 1 zucchini, peeled and cut into cubes
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- 30g raw pine nuts OR walnuts
- 1/2 cup basil leaves
- 1 tbsp dried rosemary (fresh if possible)
- 1 tbsp dried oregano (fresh if possible)
- A squeeze of lemon juice
