Pesto is super simple to make and a great way to eat your greens! Not a big hit with our toddler but what else is new?
1/4 C basil
1 bunch spinach, washed, stems removed
1 bunch green kale, washed, stems removed and blanched 30 seconds
3 cloves garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 C raw cashews
2T olive oil or water
1. Put everything in a food processor and blend it. Add more oil or water to get the desired consistency.
2. Refrigerate until ready to eat
To use as pasta sauce: heat desired amount in a small pot over medium heat and add pasta water or regular water to make into sauce, stir
To use as a marinade: mix with a little oil and rub all over chicken. Put chicken in a ziplock in the fridge until ready to cook.
To use in eggs: add pesto to scrambled eggs just as you stir it into the pan. Green Eggs and Ham!
Let me know how else you use your pesto!
