: vegan meal of the week : week 24 :

oh my goodness.
so, we all know that summer fruits, veggies and herbs are all over the place!

we got a bunch of broccoli in our csa box, and some friends gave us a HUGE haul of basil.
so what did we make?

Broccoli Pesto
recipe found here // modifications made by me

what you need : 
*1 large broccoli (around 2 cups)
*couple of stems fresh basil or sage
*1/2 lemon, juice
*1/2 cup hazelnuts (roasted chickpeas if you’re allergic) [we used almonds]
*2 cloves garlic
*1/2 cup olive oil
*2 tbsp water
*salt & pepper

how to do it : 
1) Throw all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse for about a minute. Taste it. 
2) Add more olive oil or water if it feels too dry, and salt & pepper according to taste.
Serve with pasta, in a salad, on a sandwich or in a wrap.
this was SO good
