2 TBS pumpkin seed oil
1/2 cup parsley, chopped

1. soak the pumpkin pound cake in the almond milk.

2. combine, garlic, cashews, walnuts, parmesan, moistened pumpkin pound cake, and extra virgin olive in a food processor. pulse until smooth, then go full blast and drizzle in the pumpkin seed oil. taste. season. reserve.
