  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups arugula
  • 1 1/2 cups spinach
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tbsp brown rice vinegar
  • 8 ounces gluten free pasta (buckwheat pasta works well)
  • 4 servings roasted summer vegetables - refer to our roasted summer vegetables recipe
  • 2 tbsp vegan parmesan bits - refer to our vegan parmesan bits recipe

Instructions
 

  • Chop the garlic in a food processor.
  • Add the arugula, spinach and basil and process for a minute or two until they are minced.
  • Add the tahini, miso and vinegar. Continue to process until smoot and creamy.
  • Transfer the pesto to a small bowl and set aside.
  • Cook the Pasta in boiling water, following the package directions. Drain it, saving 1/2 a cup of the water.
