Green Goddess Pasta

close icon

Pesto is one of my favorite sauces for pasta dishes, but often it upsets my stomach. Luckily I can tolerate this Vegan Kale Pesto to get my pesto fix. It is FODMAP friendly and vegan!

Serves: 4


  • Gluten Free pasta of choice (I like a quinoa pasta)
  • 2 cups basil
  • 1 cup curly kale
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 Tbsp garlic infused olive oil
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Baby spinach


  1. Cook the pasta!
  2. While the water is boiling, make the pesto. Combine the basil, kale, lemon juice, garlic infused olive oil, nutritional yeast, and nuts in a food processor. Blend until combined and add salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 Tbsp of water at a time if needed for the pesto to mix well.
  3. Mix together the cooked pasta with the pesto and baby spinach to have a Green Goddess Pasta meal!
