Raw Vegan Pepper Creamy Walnut Pesto

Raw Food, Stuff I Make | April 23, 2016 | By

This Raw Vegan Creamy Walnut Pesto is made with a handful of clean ingredients and is ready in just minutes. It has the sweetness from the Pepper and a little spice from the cayenne pepper. And, it can be made in your food processor faster than the time it takes for the pasta. You’ll want to get yourself a spiralizer to make the pasta noodles – otherwise it’s way too much work and you’ll just want to boil noodles instead.  With a spiralizer you get perfect veggie noodles and a lot of fun making them.
