2 cups packed basil, parsley, cilantro, spinach, chard, kale, collards, carrot tops, sun-dried tomatoes, or cooked beets (you can also combine any of these, except tomatoes and beets)
1/2 cup toasted nuts (walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, pecans, or white beans, chickpeas — or no nuts at all)
3 cloves crushed garlic (or 2 garlic scapes)
1 cup finely shredded cheese (parmesan, romano, cheddar, mozzarella, etc.)
1 tablespoon lemon juice (or half lemon juice, half vinegar, or none at all)
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil
Pinch of salt (optional)
Put the five ingredients into a food processor and pulse to blend. Slowly add oil through feed tube until it makes a nice paste.
