Creamy Cashew & Hemp Seed Arugula Pesto

This pesto is a quick recipe and perfect for a weeknight pasta dinner, cauliflower mash or as a dip to go with your veggie plate or veggie or pita chips. We love using cashews as a base for sauces or spreads. Cashews don’t require soaking; just add them to your power blender along with other ingredients and you get that light yet creamy texture that’s ideal for vegan sauces. Hemp seeds are fiber and iron rich superfood and land themselves well in this recipe.
