Basil Pesto---dairy free

I needed a dairy free basil pesto. I have a ton of pesto in my garden!! This was great. I love a bit mixed in brown rice as a snack!

1/4 cup pine nuts (some say you can substitute walnuts--I haven't tried this)
2 cloves garlic
2 cups fresh basil leaves loosely packed
virgin olive oil, as needed (I used 1 tablespoon)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Process top 4 ingredients to a rough paste in processor (could also use mortar and pestle)
2. With machine running slowly pour oil in feed tube to form the consistency you desire. Add salt and pepper.
3. Use now or store in glass container in frig or freeze in cubes in your ice tray--
