1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 medium sized garlic cloves, minced (optional)
stale bread, soaked in water (optional)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Special equipment needed: A food processor

1 Put walnuts in food processor and pulse a few times.  Add the basil and pulse.  If adding garlic,  add the garlic, pulse a few times more. Add the lemon juice.

2 Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula.  If texture is off, add stale bread soaked in water.  Add a very tiny pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
