It's a dip day! I recently joined a CSA and in my first box I received a bunch of fresh beautiful Basil. First thought, Pesto! My first attempt at the dip, it actually turned out well. It is so easy to make! A delicious little spread to spice up any dish or a yummy dip for gluten-free crackers, Pesto can be used in so many ways.
My husband loves Hummus and so I decided to give it a shot as well today. Another simple creation, it's mostly Chick Peas and spices! I had fun trying different combinations, but ended up with a Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Hummus. I didn't keep track of the ingredients well enough to share with you, so this one will have to go without a recipe. I hope you can enjoy the pesto!
1/2 cup Pine Nuts
2 1/2 cups fresh Organic Basil

Sea Salt to taste
1/4 - 1/2 cup Olive Oil
Blend in a Food Processor. Then add up to 1/2 cup of Olive Oil while pulsing, stopping when you reach your desired consistency. Refrigerate and serve!
