Broccoli Pesto

If you have any grain or vegetables try this.

  • Half a head broccoli (or cauliflower) chopped into one inch pieces
  • ½ cup chopped basil
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1- 2 cups left over wild rice, millet, amaranth or quinoa

Make a dressing with the lemon,  garlic and oil and mix well. Assemble the vegetable, cheese, nuts, and grain and pour the dressing over and the grain, vegetables mix and serve!
