Many chefs use Basil Genovese  (Ocimum basilicum) interchangeably considered sweet basil! She has her distinctive taste that marries well with anything remotely Italian. Try her in pestos, tomato sauces, pasta, or a salad. The sweet aroma that hints of mint and anise will have you singing in the kitchen! Add one plant per one foot of garden space and expect her to grow 2-3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Three plants will feed one person during the growing season.

Nut-free Basil Pesto

Credit: Hannah Kling @lovelydelites

You Will Need:

2 cups fresh basil
1/3 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1-3 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice


To start, wash your basil leaves and then add them to your food processor along with the remainder of the ingredients: hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, garlic, EVOO, salt, pepper, lemon juice.

Blend ingredients for about 1-2 minutes or until you achieve the desired texture that you want. I recommend stopping and scraping down the sides at least a few times to make sure all the ingredients are well blended together.

That’s it, so simple! This pesto is best stored in an airtight container and enjoyed within 3-4 days.
