Balsamic Pesto Sauce

Ingredients

- 1 1/2 Cups Fresh basil leaves (lemon basil is delicious if you can find it)

- 2 cloves Garlic

- 1/4 Cup Pine Nuts

- 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

- 1/4 Cup Dark Balsamic Vinegar

- 1/4 Cup Vegetable Stock

- Pinch Salt and Black Pepper

Preparation

- Place basil, garlic and pine nuts in a small food processor and chop until very fine.  While processor is running, slowly pour olive oil, vinegar, and stock through the opening and continue blending for 1 minute.  Pesto will be soupy, not thick like the traditional style.  Remove to a plastic or glass container and add salt and pepper.  Store in refrigerator for up to one week.
