Basil Pea Pesto

Ingredients:
2 small bags of thawed sweet peas (10 oz bags)
4 oz (large) container of fresh basil
1 slightly heaping dry cup nutritional yeast
2.5 tsp sea salt or to taste
Juice of 2 juicy lemons* 
1 1/2 cups veggie broth (may use more)
6 fresh garlic cloves (any size)**

Instructions:
Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend smooth. It will take awhile to get it smooth. Add more broth if you want a thinner consistency. 

Note:
*You may need to add another 1/2 to whole lemon if your lemons are not juicy.
**The center stems of garlic causes a very strong bitter garlic taste. To avoid overwhelming the dish, remove the center stems. If they don’t have stems, that means they are super fresh.
