In a food processor, add the garlic, sea salt, hemp hearts, miso or nutritional yeast, water plus flax seed, and process until finely chopped.
Add the basil, and begin to process again and slowly pour olive oil into food processor and continue to blend until mixture is smooth. Add lemon juice if desired.
*If you are allergic to soy then the nutritional yeast is a delicious plant-based alternative in this pesto.
