Pumpkin Seed Pesto

What you need: 

3 cups (loosely-packed) fresh basil
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 can (15 oz) great northern beans
salt and pepper to taste
water (as needed if too thick)

What you do: 

Simply toss everything into your Cuisinart and blend until smooth!
My favorite way to eat this sauce is over shell pasta with several garden-fresh tomatoes thrown in... mmmmm... tangy, creamy, and chock full of manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, tryptophan, iron, copper, vitamin K, zinc, and protein. Yum!
