  5. 4 Cloves garlic

  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Pulse above ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!
  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.
