Easy vegan pesto

by Emma

One of my favourite dinners, so easy and simple. Going low FODMAP I missed pesto so much and new I had to find an alternative – this one takes 2 minutes to put together and is full of good greens.


As much gluten free pasta as you wish

Big handful of spinach

Bug handful of fresh basil

1/2 an avocado

1/2 cup of pine nuts

Big glug of olive oil

Squeeze of lemon juice

Sea salt and pepper to taste


Place your pasta on to boil before throwing all of the other ingredients in a blender and whizzing on high – change the recipe to your taste as you go! I often find myself adding more spinach or olive oil. Once your pasta is cooked, drain and simply spoon the pesto on top! Add whatever toppings you wish.

Note: makes two portions
