Just use a pesto recipe and substitute with faux parmesan.

1 cup of nutritional yeast
1/2 cup raw almonds, without skins
1/2 tsp salt

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process for severl minutes until it is all finely ground.

take any decent pesto recipe - make according to instructions but leave out the parmesan - you cant taste it anyway.

Bullshit, parmesan is one of the main ingredients in pesto.

This is the recipe I usually use. I substituted faux parmesan and i though it tasted really good, even non-vegans said it was pretty similar to the real thing.

Faux parmesan doesn't really taste like parmesan by itself but is fine used in recipes.[/url]

A real pesto should have parmesan cheese, or sometimes romano or asiago.

I am yet to see a good pesto recipe that has no cheese.

pecorino
is the most common substitute for parma.
but even supermarket "gourmet" brands have vegan pesto's and if you want to got to a decent store and buy dope shit then you can get many vegan pestos and tapernades.

I've made it with a nutritional yeast parmesan substitute before, but didn't find it necessary. Tastes great without any parmesan.

Salsa only made pesto with no cheese.

and it was the badness.

Im pretty sure 7 in grey lynn also does the same.

there is no need to make pesto with cheese. if you want then sweet who cares, but its just as good without.
