  • 1/2 cup green peas cooked
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes whole
  • 2 cups cooked pasta (use gluten-free pasta if desired)


  1. Add cooked peas, mint leaves, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, garlic clove, salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil to a food processor and blend to form a paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat a pan over low-medium heat and add the cherry tomatoes. Stir and char the skin (around 4-5 minutes).
  3. Once it's charred, add cooked pasta + the mint-pea paste. Mix well. Add a bit of water if you get a thick texture. I usually use 3 tablespoons pesto for 2 cups of cooked pasta and save the remaining for later. That's it. Your mint pea pesto pasta is ready. Serve hot.
