hey Loving these recipes however hemp pesto is neither vegan or vegetarian. Parmesan is not a vegetarian cheese, it is made with meat products, I know weird right....so I am going to make this without the cheese, thanks for the inspiration

Hi Michele,

You are, of course, correct - thank you for pointing this out! This page has recently been updated, and the previous version was a vegan recipe. It is possible to make a delicious vegan version of this pesto using tamari to achieve the salty, savory flavour.

With best wishes,

Scarlet
