Cheesy Vegan Keto PestoPin recipeFollow us 94.5k

Pesto is such a versatile condiment to have on hand. It can be slathered on keto bread or low-carb crackers as a snack, tossed through zoodles to make a tasty vegan pasta dish, slathered on meat or fish as a delicious marinade.

This recipe is both nut free, dairy free and vegan, and uses a mixture of sunflower and pumpkin seeds along with nutritional yeast instead of the more traditional pine nuts and parmesan cheese. Rest assured though that flavour isn’t compromised here — this pesto is just as delicious as it’s traditional counterpart!
