½ cup Mint leaves; loosely packed
1 tablespoon Peeled; finely chopped garlic

½ cup Olive oil
⅓ cup Freshly grated Parmesan or asiago cheese
2 tablespoons Rich chicken or vegetable stock; more if needed

In a food processor or blender add basil, mint, garlic, nuts and oil and puree. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in cheese and stock to desired consistency. Correct seasoning with salt and pepper. Store covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
