Who can resist the flavor of basil? It enhances so many things, from vegetable soup to spaghetti, to sandwiches – anything savory that wants a little extra kick. This pesto is easy to put together and can be frozen for a few weeks.
- 2 cups of basil leaves packed down
- 2 cups of spinach leaves packed down
- ½ cup shelled walnuts, preferably toasted
- 2 cloves of garlic
- ¼ to ½ cup of vegetable broth or white wine
- Salt and pepper to taste
Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until the sauce is fairly smooth. Add more broth or wine to get the consistency you want.
This makes about one cup.
