- 2 Cups Fresh basil leaves

- 1/2 Cup of pine nuts (or walnuts)

- Salt and pepper to taste
- Pulse above ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
- * If you are a fan of nutritional yeast it can add a bit of a "cheesy" taste to the pesto but I suggest using it sparingly as it tends to overpower the taste of the pesto and take away from the freshness of the flavour. I know some people who add as much as a 1/4 cup but I find that any more than about 1/2 a tablespoon is a bit much for my taste.
