1 garlic clove or 1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup unsalted shelled pistachios or pine nuts or cashews or any nuts you care to try
up to 1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice or maybe a little more
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (or use mint for a pesto that is divine with lamb) You can use more mint than this in the recipe without increasing other ingredients
Blend together all ingredients using about 1/2 of the oil for a start. Add more oil if needed while blending.
Taste and adjust lemon juice and garlic.
