This pesto recipe is made with vegetable stock instead of olive oil, saving on fat and calories.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

Used different ingredients. A delicious recipe! used chicken stock instead of veggie and cashews instead of pine nuts. Served with pasta and tuna. My 11 yr daughter loved it! - 16 Dec 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. Not the best pesto in the world, but still quite good. It's amazing that it's that good with so little fat! This is now my new default pesto recipe, and I'll use the pesto in everything in the future. I only used half the vegetable stock, though. - 24 Jul 2008
