There’s no picture today, as it was so delicious I ate it all before I could take one.
Home Made Pesto
Pesto is a pretty easy, if expensive, sauce that you can add to pasta, pizza, salad, and really almost anything.
2 cups packed Basil, chopped
3/4 cup Pine nuts (lightly roasted)
1 cup Olive Oil (Extra Virgin optional)
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Salt & pepper
1 Clove Galic, finely chopped
Combine ingredients in a food processor in the following order: Garlic, Pine Nuts, Basil, Olive Oil, Parmesan Cheese. Grind on low power until reaching the consistency of course grit. Season to taste, and before serving you may wish to mix in a tsp of lemon juice to bring out the flavour.
1 cup of Pesto from above
2 cups Blooming Broccoli Florets, chopped into chunks
2 cups Beet Greens, chopped coarsely
1 cup Swiss Chard, chopped coarsely
1 cup Kale, chopped finely
Thuroughly mix ingredients in a Salad bowl, and stir in pesto. Fold together until pesto coats veggies. Serve.
Goes great with mashed poatoes, and a lager of your choice.
