It’s hard to beat the classic flavors of basil pesto made with pine nuts and parmesan cheese, but we decided to give this traditional Italian sauce a zesty, dairy-free spin using nutty pistachios, cooling mint, bright lemon, and cheesy nutritional yeast. Use it to make a quick weeknight meal when tossed with pasta, or drizzle it over a bowl of polenta topped with a fried egg. If you make the pesto in advance, just drizzle a light layer of oil over the top before refrigerating, to help prevent browning.
