Broccoli Pesto

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Geema

This is a recipe of Bert Greene's that I make all the time. If you love pesto, you will love this recipe! I use it on hot pasta and rice, as a base for pizza, as a tasty dressing for cooked veggies like potatoes, green beans and zucchini. Let your imagination run wild and reap the benefits of those extra vitamins in the raw broccoli.

Was curious about this because of the broccoli and wanted to get the bonus of the extra vitamins, it was very good, still had the classic pesto flavor. I did use the pine nuts, was afraid the walnuts could leave a bitter after taste.
