"A unique, spreadable basil pesto that's thickened with extra walnuts and lightly sweetened with maple syrup. Instead of putting this on pasta--which can dilute the intense flavors---try this on hot, crusty bread, alongside hummus and olives on an appetizer tray. It's an absolute must on fresh tomato pizza or slathered on roasted squash." Veganomicon
Chop the basil, walnuts, and garlic in a food processor until chunky. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the processor bowl frequently. Add the oils, maple syrup, and lemon zest, and process until thick and creamy. Season with salt and pepper. Store in a glass jar with a thin layer of olive oil on the surface and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
