No Nut Pesto

This summer has been a good one for basil, tomatoes and green onions  but I hate using so much oil in pesto so I tried this Chef AJ version with no nuts and no oil. I made my usual Moosewood Cookbook version too and the No Nut held up pretty well. Use it first. Without the oil, it doesn't hold onto the basil taste as long as the original.

1 can   cannellini beans, drained
1 oz. basil
2-3 cloves garlic
1 T. miso
1/4 cup lemon juice

Blend it in the food processor. If I put it in the Vitamix, would it make a difference? I need to buy more beans and then I will try it again.
