Macadamia and Hemp Seed Pesto Pasta
100g Macadamia Nuts roasted
2 ½ Tbsp Hemp Seeds
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1 Garlic clove
1 bunch Basil Leaves
250ml Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 x packet planet-based pasta (Chickpea Fettucine or Red Lentil Penne works a treat!)
4 spears Asparagus, shaved
½ Cup Peas
In a mini food processor combine macadamia nuts, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, garlic and basil leaves.
Pulse the mixture until the leaves are roughly chopped and the mixture resembled breadcrumbs.
Pulsing the food processor, add Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a thin stream until all incorporated.
Prepare planet-based pasta according to packet instructions. Drain, add pesto and toss to coat.
Blanch asparagus and peas in a bowl of boiling water, drain and toss through the pasta to serve.
