Meatless Monday: Broccoli Pesto
Who doesn’t love a yummy pesto sauce? While pesto is a delicious topping for your favorite pasta, it’s not the healthiest choice you can make. Enter Broccoli pesto. This pesto uses broccoli as its base so it’s healthier and more filling!
Ingredients
2 cups (145 grams) fresh Broccoli florets
1/2 cup (65 grams) cup toasted Walnuts
1/2 cup (65 grams) grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Sea Salt
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
3/4 cup (145 grams) Olive Oil (adjust accordingly)
1 tablespoon Capers
Blanch, steam or microwave broccoli for a few minutes until it is bright green but not too soft. Plunge in an ice bath to stop cooking. Remove and pat with a paper towel to dry. Purée in a blender or food processor with the remainder of the ingredients.
