      This was a great new take on pesto and we served it on brown rice. I used almonds instead of pine nuts. It made a generous amount so I can put the remainder into the freezer.

      Nice change from regular pesto! Made as is but used less olive oil. Added some lemon juice to replace olive oil. Thanks Sharon!

      A great way to use all the broccoli in my garden. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a T of lemon juice to give it some more zing. I served on lightly toasted baguettes with fresh chopped tomatoes for a refreshing brushetta.
