Use this basic recipe to create any kind of pesto with garden greens. You can substitute any leafy green vegetable or herb for the basil.
Add the garlic, nuts, cheese and one tablespoon of olive oil to the basin of a food processor. Pulse into a paste.
Add the basil leaves. Pulse until the greens and paste are mixed, then scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
With the food processor running, stream the rest of the olive oil in through the chute in the lid.
Check the seasonings and add salt and pepper to taste.
