Multiplier Onion Pesto

Yield2 Servings

A multiplier onion is a variation of the more common green onion, also called spring onion. It produces more than one bulb per plant, hence the name multiplier. For this amazingly delicious recipe, you can substitute with the more common green onions. Multiplier onions are rich in thiamine as well as Vitamins C, B2, A, and Vitamin K. The fresh flavors of this pesto will elevate any salad, pizza, or pasta dish and will have you dreaming of summer.


 1 bunch multiplier onions, green stems included (about 2 cups)
 ½ cup walnuts or pine nuts
 1 garlic clove
 1 tablespoon agave syrup or maple syrup
 ¼ teaspoon salt
 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
 3 tablespoons olive oil

Place everything, except olive oil, in a food processor and, using the pulse button, mix until the pesto is chunky. Slowly pour in olive oil and pulse until everything is mixed.


The pesto should not be totally smooth but have a chunky consistency.


If you prefer a strong pesto, you can pour it raw over noodles, or you may heat it over low heat for 3-4 minutes adding a little more nutritional yeast to taste and then serve.


Leftover pesto keeps well in the refrigerator for a few days, or you may freeze it for further use.
