Ingredients
  1. 2 Cups Fresh basil leaves
  2. 1 Cup Fresh Parsley
  3. 1/2 Cup of pine nuts (or walnuts)
  4. 1/2 Cup cashews
  5. 4 Cloves garlic
  6. 1/2 Cup Olive oil
  7. Juice of 1 large lemon
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Pulse above ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. * 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.
