Basil Pesto

Bright green pesto makes for a nutritious & delicious dip or pasta sauce


Toast the nuts or seeds until they smell delicious. (You can do this on a cookie sheet in the oven, in your toaster oven, or in a pan on the stove over low heat, stirring regularly.) Put all the ingredients in your food processor and grind until it turns into a smooth paste. Taste and add more cheese or oil or lemon juice or nuts or garlic until it seems right to you.
