1 garlic clove
1/4 cup roasted or toasted cashews
1 cup tightly packed basil leaves
1 cup snipped chives
1 tablespoon lemon thyme (or regular)
Juice of ½ a lemon
¼ cup olive oil
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small food processor pulse the garlic and the nuts until finely chopped. Add the basil, chives, thyme, and lemon juice and blend until the herbs have begun to break down. Add the olive oil, and puree until the mixture is smooth and at your desired consistency, adding more oil as necessary to break down the nuts and herbs. Fold in the Parmesan and taste for seasoning. Add salt and extra lemon juice for acidity as needed.
