Creamy Pesto Sauce

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

* 2 cups cooked soybeans
* 1 large bunch basil, washed and spun dry
* juice of 2 lemons
* zest of 1 lemon
* 5 large cloves garlic
* 6 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
* 1/4 cup plain soymilk
* salt/pepper to taste
* *optional * several grates of fresh nutmeg


Place all of the above in a food processor or strong blender. I use a
VitaMix. Process for several minutes until very creamy. This takes at
least 2 minutes.

This is delicious as a creamy pesto for pasta, a mayo like spread for
sandwiches, as a topping for soups or casseroles, or to add flavor to
steamed veggies or in salad dressings. The possibilities are endless!

Serves: 12

Preparation time: variable
