Peanut Pesto

A delightful twist on regular pesto.  No need to buy expensive pine nuts!

What you need:
2/3 cup honey roasted peanuts
1 hot pepper, chopped
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 fresh mint leaves
1/3 cup fresh parsley
3 T soy sauce
3 T rice vinegar
1/2 grated Parmesan cheese
Olive Oil/ Water

Place all ingredients except oil/ water in blender.  Add oil/ water as necessary to create a thick paste (I used about half water and half oil).

Enjoy as a dip, spread, or base for a pasta sauce.  I made a tuna salad using this, canned tuna, chopped onion and celery, and olive oil mayonnaise
