  • Air Fryer
  • Food Processor or Blender

what you'll need

  • 2 lb red potatoes quartered or cut into 2” pieces
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper

let's do it

  • In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the avocado oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until completely coated.
  • Spread onto the air fryer sheet evenly. Cook the potatoes in the air fryer at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until tender and slightly charred.
  • In a high speed blender or food processor, add the basil, olive oil, garlic cloves, lemon, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse until the basil is completely broken down into small pieces and you have a pesto sauce.
  • Serve the potatoes with the pesto drizzled over the top.

One Last Thing

If you don't have an air fryer, cook the potatoes in the oven at 450°F for 20-25 minutes.
