This pesto gives a nice little unexpected punch to pizzas, pastas, and steamed vegetables. Spoon it on baked tofu or fish tacos, or fold it into scrambled eggs—it even elevates a plain old salami and cheddar sandwich.

  2. 2Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then process for 30 seconds more. Transfer to a serving bowl, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
