Parsley peanut pesto

Parsley Peanut2


This is perfect for vegans! I use this pesto sauce for pasta, pizza base, as sandwich spread, as dip for crunchy veggies like carrot, cucumber and celery, and as salad sauce! One sauce, multi-purpose.. love it!

Parsley is a totally underrated superfood that boosts the immune system and boasts anti-inflammatory properties, and I love to use pesto as a vehicle to get more of it into my diet.

Preparation time-5 minutes


  • Roasted unsalted peanuts-1/2cup
  • Walnuts-4-6
  • Parsley-1cup
  • Garlic clove-1
  • Olive oil-1tbsp +for garnish
  • Salt- to taste
  • Ground black pepper-1/4tsp


  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until desired consistency is reached.
  • Mix in hot pasta, use as a sandwich spread, pizza spread or in crepes as I did (recipe link).



  • Can skip walnuts and use just peanuts or any nuts alternatively.
