Basil Pesto


Eve's combination of recipes from The 15-Minute Vegetarian Gourmet and Vegan Planet

An easy vegan pesto to mix with pasta, rice, polenta, or zucchini noodles.


470 ml 2 c. fresh basil leaves
59 ml1/4 c. pine nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, or raw cashews
2 cloves garlic
1-2 T. olive oil
1 ml1/4 tsp. salt (optional)


Place basil leaves, nuts, garlic and olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Makes 1/2 cup.


I like to make a large batch and keep some in the freezer for next time.
