This recipe is one of my new favorites! I can easily whip this up and make sure I am getting plenty of vegetables without having to bust my wallet or wait for summer to have enough basil on hand. I swear it doesn't take like broccoli either. I am a big fan of broccoli, but too much can upset my stomach, a gentle boil or steam and blend with the yummiest of pesto ingredients makes this a creamy dream. If you struggle to get enough veggies in your life, this recipe is easy, delicious and so nutritious. I promise, if you try this, it won't bust your wallet or your time. I made this in 15 minutes and topped a salad in 5 when I had absolutely no dinner plans.
I originally invented this recipe when I had a chopped style challenge in my cooking lab at school. We had a head a broccoli and a kale salad in the works. At first we decided to roast the broccoli for the side, but decided to make it easily digestible and delicious by blending it up into a pesto. Along with our kale salad and pesto, we topped it with chopped dates which turned out to be a surprisingly delicious addition. Now, enough about it, get cooking because it really is so simple and yummy!
