- 1/2 cup silken tofu
- 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Place basil, tofu, pine nuts, oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth. Add Parmesan and pulse until combined.
