Green Pesto

This pesto can be made with any variety or combination of green vegetables or herbs, including leafy greens, broccoli, asparagus, or a mix of fresh herbs. For a cheaper version, substitute walnuts for a nuttier flavor. No matter the ingredients, the end result is a versatile and easy way to infuse your meal with nutrients and flavor.

Adapted from Food Network.

Combine and mix with an immersion blender:

  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups of green vegetables or herbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan or Pecorino cheese
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Kosher or Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Makes enough for 4-8 servings.
