Dinner from our backyard

The basil plants have grown about a foot in the past three weeks which means one thing to me: PESTO.
So last night I grabbed some basil leaves and headed for my less-than-ideal blender to whip some up.
I know the picture gives a murky green seaweed-like representation, but really, it was delicious. I substituted out the pine nuts that most recipes call for, in favor of the more budget friendly sunflower seeds (you could also use walnuts).
Paired with freshly picked cauliflower and green beans, this has definitely been one of my favorite meals from the garden this summer.
