This pesto is so packed with vitamins and minerals – your body will be humming along nicely and when you eat lots of color (remember science and photosynthesis?) – that comes from the sun, that energy and glow will happen to you. Since becoming a vegetarian – consuming more and more vegetables has changed my skin texture and it now has a glow plus I have a ton of energy. Back to the recipe at hand… this recipe can be made solely with basil or a combination of basil, kale and spinach – whatever you like. Totally flexible and totally tasty. Also refrigerates or freezes beautifully. Plus how easy is this dinner… process it in your food processor or Vitamix and keep it in the fridge till you boil your pasta. Ummmm hello easy weeknight dinner. Also spreads great on crackers, acts as a dip for veggies or a spread on your sandwich, top your favorite protein, in soup… the ideas are endless.Print
