1 cup tightly packed fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic, pressed or minced. Add more to taste; this is minimal.
2 tablespoons walnuts (or substitute roasted sunflower seeds)
1/2 cup grated hard cheese
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons water or lemon juice
salt, if needed
Place leaves in food processor and chop coarsely.
Add remaining ingredients and pulse, scraping down the sides of the container when necessary, until all contents are well blended into a medium-thick paste. Taste the pesto for seasoning and add salt, if needed.
Thin with a little water if too thick.
If you have access to an abundance of basil, make excess pesto and freeze it for future use.
