Easy Vegan Pesto

I love pesto.  Its great as a sandwich spread and with pasta dishes.

Easy Vegan Pesto

2 cups tightly packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup walnuts, pine nuts, almonds or pecans (I used walnuts)
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (evoo)
1 tsp kosher salt or to taste
couple of grinds of fresh pepper
3 Tb nutritional yeast (nooch)
1 Tb fresh lemon juice

Place basil, nuts, and garlic in the food processor.  Pulse to combine until coarsely ground.   Turn on motor and add evoo in a thin stream through the feed tube.  Turn off and add salt, pepper, nooch and lemon juice.  Pulse to combine.  Taste and adjust seasonings. 

This recipe is based on this one here.
