Winter Pesto Recipe

Ingredients

2 ½ cups (packed) mixed fresh local greens (spinach, kale, parsley, Asian Mix, or Braising Mix)

3 cloves garlic

¼ – ½  cup nuts of your choice (walnuts work well)

½  cup grated hard white cheese

1 ½ tablespoons organic lemon juice

½ cup organic olive oil (more or less – to your liking)

1 teaspoon of sea salt

 

Directions

Place the greens, garlic, and nuts in a food processor and chop as fine as possible.  Add the cheese, lemon juice, salt and oil. Continue processing until well blended.

Serve right away or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Freeze for longer keeping.

** Double recipe makes seven 1/3 cup portions that I individually wrap and freeze.
