    Really creamy not enough basil! I had to keep adding enough to get that flavor come through

    I added 2 more cloves of garlic and that may have been a bit too much But, absolutely delicious none the less. This will become a new staple in my diet.

    This recipe surpasses the traditional pesto (uses cheese) any time! I've had this on chips, spaghetti, toasts, sandwiches and on fresh veggies as a dip and it's been fantastic on all of them. The texture is just right for me but could easily be adjusted with olive oil, water or avocados. Would highly recommend for everyone, even those who aren't committed to a diet!

    So incredibly fantastic. Had on zucchini noodles last night, and on my eggs this AM. I added one extra Clive of garlic. Perfection.

    Delicious! I will definitely make this recipe again. Think I'll add a shallot next time also. It was good for 5-6 servings for me.
