Ingredients:

• Basil – 1 large bunch (preferably Genovese, though lemon basil or a blend of the two could also work quite well)
• Pumpkin seeds, raw, green variety – ½ C to 1C
• Macadamia nuts – ½ C to 1 full Cup (these should near-match the amount of pumpkinseeds used and will be added in gradually, so please adjust measurements according to your own flavour & texture preferences)
• Garlic or garlic scapes – 2-4 (or according to personal preferences)
• Extra virgin olive oil (unfiltered, first cold press) – ¼ C to  C (please adjust according to texture & personal preferences)
• Celtic Sea Salt – to taste

 

 

Preparation:

Blend all ingredients together in food processor (reserving basil until the end), using pulse mechanism. Add basil toward the end, still pulsing (maintains texture) until mixture has reached desired consistency.
