Mint Basil pesto

Ingredients
Fresh Basil (Tulsi) Leaves - 2 cups
Garlic - 3 cloves
Pine Nuts - 2 tablespoons (I used Almonds)
Salt - To taste - 1 teaspoon
Pepper - 1 teaspoon
Olive Oil - 1/4 - 1/2 cup
Grated Cheese - 1/4 cup (preferably Parmesan. I used Mozzarella)

Method
1. To a blender, add garlic, basil, mint, pine nuts, salt, pepper & olive oil.
2. Blend to a coarse paste.
3. Now add grated Parmesan cheese and mix it into the rest of the mixture.
4. If the pesto is too thick, add a tablespoon of water
5. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to use it. This should keep for 2 - 3 days in the fridge but freezes well if you want to keep it longer.
