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

A creamy pesto sauce or for raw pastas, pizzas, wraps or a yummy veggie dip.
