1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup water
2 medium cloves garlic
Juice of 1 medium lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
Dash of coarse black pepper
1 big handful of fresh basil, leaves only (most of one bunch, about a generous 1/2 cup)
1. Blend all ingredients except the basil until smooth and creamy.
2. Then add basil and pulse. You still want there to be green flecks in the sauce.
