2 cups fresh basil leaves, tightly packed
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 tablespoons cashews, soaked
1 small garlic clove, roughly chopped
½ teaspoon lemon zest
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1. In a food processor, combine basil, hemp, cashews, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Pulse to roughly combine.
2. With motor running, slowly pour in 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Process until mixture is smooth, about 10-15 seconds. You will likely need to stop and wipe the edges of the blender or food processor and then resume pureeing.
