1 oz Pine nuts; or other nuts of your choice
3 oz Olive oil; more or less

Original recipe makes 1



Chop the habs up. Put into blender or food processor with cilantro, garlic and cheese. Puree, slowly adding olive oil until emulsified. We used this to rub down a pork tenderloin before smoking it. Would also be great grilled or roasted, as this will not burn on the outside.
