Walnut-Pesto Roasted Vegetables


This recipe is one of the six that was featured in this month’s issue of Happiness + Wellbeing Magazine (to see the other 5 recipes pictured at the bottom of this post, check out this months issue! It’s called The Wild Love issue).

Makes: 4 servings


  • 2 cups brussel sprouts, rinsed and halved
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup raw walnuts
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ¼ tsp. iodized salt


Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine basil leaves, walnuts, olive oil, nutritional yeast, garlic and salt in a food processor and blend until you have a nice, smooth pesto sauce (about 60 seconds on ‘chop’).

Rinse brussel sprouts and chopped cauliflower florets. Cut brussel sprouts in half lengthwise and put the vegetables into a mixing bowl. Using a spatula, pour the pesto into your mixing bowl and mix the ingredients. Pour the pesto vegetable mixture onto a walled baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes. Pull them out of the oven, toss them with a spatula quickly so they don’t burn and bake for another 10 minutes.
