Brazil Nut Pesto

Everyone loves a good pesto. Not only is it garlicky, juicy, and packed with aromatic basil, but it also happens to be the perfect sauce for sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and stir fries. This pesto packs flavour, with brazil nuts, lemon, garlic, and a little extra saltiness from sun dried tomatoes. It's so delicious, you'll want to eat this one by the spoonful!



2 cups fresh basil leaves (packed)

2 small garlic cloves (or 1 large Ontario garlic clove)

6 tbsp olive oil

3/4 juice of 1 lemon

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

5-6 sun dried tomatoes

salt and pepper to taste



Place all the ingredients into a food processor or blender. Mix the ingredients to a desired consistency, (I like to leave the sauce a bit chunky.) You may need to add a tbsp or so of water, to make sure that everything mixes well.
