Tofu Pesto
From: Julie Bernstein

Here's another, from The McDougall Quick and Easy Cookbook, p. 217.

Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:10

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3-4 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 10.5 ounce pkg lite silken tofu
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy parmesan cheese -- optional
Place the basil, cashews, and garlic in a food processor.
Process until smooth.
Add the tofu and cheese, if desired, and process until smooth and creamy.

Note: I substituted nutritional yeast for the soy cheese.
