  • 2 cups basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts, walnuts, or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • salt to taste


  • put garlic and salt in food processor and pulse
  • add basil leaves and blend
  • add olive oil in stream while it’s blending
  • add nuts or seeds and blend well
