Pasta with Miso Pesto

I am trying to expand my vegan recipes. So, I asked one of my chef friends and he said this was great tossed with pasta. He attributes this recipe to the Vegetarian Times.


  • Pasta, enough for 4 of your choice, cooked and drained
  • ½ cup spinach leaves, washed and spun dry
  • ½ cup fresh parsley leaves, washed and spun dry
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, washed and spun dry
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp light miso (Japanese bean paste)
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted


  • Food processor or blender
  • Large bowl


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  2. Puree to until smooth.
  3. Toss with pasta of your choice.
