A classic recipe that can be used through pasta, on sandwiches, or try something a little different by spreading on an omelette. For a twist on the original, add sun dried tomatoes at the end. This recipe will also freeze well in containers, so don't be afraid to double the recipe - some for now, some for later.

  • 1/3 cup (45g) pine nuts
  • 2/3 cup (160ml) olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup (40g) nutritional yeast
  • 1 bunch fresh basil leaves
  • salt and pepper, to taste
