Bunches of Basil!

Starting to see them at the F&V store. Lots of love for the bunches of basil!

What do you do??
Make Pesto. Serve over Pasta. With grilled Zucchini and homemade Focaccia bread!

Here's the recipe

Basic Basil Pesto
Makes 1 ½ Cups

4 Cups fresh Basil leaves (1 to 2 bunches depending on size)
4 cloves Garlic, roughly chopped
1 Cup Pine Nuts
⅓ Cup Nutritional Yeast
¼ Cup Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Water
½ teaspoon Salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until very smooth. You’ll need to scrape the sides down a few times to ensure its all well mixed.
