Tassajara Basil, Lime, and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

This is an excellent pesto packed with nutrition and fiber. The freshness of the lime and basil are a great complement to the rich, nutty flavour of pumpkin seeds.

1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup basil, packed
4 tbsp lime juice
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper

Lightly toast pumpkin seeds and grind until they stick to the walls of the food processor. Add the remaining ingredients. Add more olive oil or lime juice to thin if necessary.

Makes 1 cup
