Ingredients

  • 2

    cups Fresh Basil Leaves, packed

  • 1/3

    cup Pine Nuts or Walnuts (or perhaps raw sunflower seeds for those who are tree nut-free?)

  • 3

    medium Garlic Cloves, minced

  • 1/2

    cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1

    and 1/2 tsp. fresh squeezed Lemon Juice (more or less, to taste)

  • 1/2

    tsp. Sea Salt

Directions

In a food processor or blender, combine the basil leaves with the nuts (or seeds), lemon juice and sea salt. Pulse a few times until mixture is reduced in volume and the mixture is well incorporated. Add the garlic and pulse a few times more. Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the blender or food processor is running, stop to scrap down the sides with a rubber spatula. Taste. Add more lemon juice and/or salt if needed. Serve with pasta, chicken, shrimp, scallops, grilled vegetables or even on gluten free bruschetta!
