I love pesto. I want to marry it and have its basillicious babies. But last weekend, I had a monster basil crop that needed harvesting, and I didn't feel like toasting nuts or pressing garlic. Lazy pesto to the rescue! I didn't measure anything, just popped it all in the food processor and gave it a few pulses. Instant deliciousness.
3 big handfuls of basil leaves
several handfuls raw walnuts
a few hearty shakes of nutritional yeast
a splash of lemon juice
a few glugs of olive oil
a few shakes of garlic powder
a couple pinches of salt
This made about a pint jar full. I had it tossed with bowtie pasta and cannellini beans last night, and have enough left to toss with gnocchi tonight.
