"I like to freeze single serving cubes of pesto for future use when I harvest my basil plants. I roast the garlic, blanch the basil, and leave out the cheese because I think it's more stable for storage that way. I use walnuts because they are cheap in comparison to pine nuts."

extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
salt and ground black pepper to taste
packed fresh basil
ice water, or as needed
extra-virgin olive oil
The frozen cubes are very handy for later use.
At first, I though the amount of oil would be excessive, but after considering there was no cheese in the recipe, it made sense.
I added plenty of salt to taste, again, to compensate for the missing cheese.
A great vegan pesto!
