Mealthy Tip

Using a high-speed blender will give you the smoothest texture, but if you don't have one or prefer your pesto a little chunky, a food processor or immersion blender will also work well. The pesto can be refrigerated for up to one week, or stored in the freezer for up to a month.

so genius to use white beans instead of parmesan to make this creamy, basil pesto. i used it as a dip, but i think you could thin it out with a few splashes of water to make it a pasta sauce.

I really liked the texture of this pesto, it was delicious. The white beans were perfect for adding creamy texture. I also loved the garlicky flavors, so yummy.
