Beetroot leaves and other greens Pesto

This pesto is must try especially if you have any leftover green leaves, carrot tops, celery leaves, broccoli leaves or herbs 🌿🌿 

you will need:

3 cups  mixture of kale (stalks removed), leaves, herbs
half a cup of nuts, almonds in my pesto ( use parmesan if you wish )
3 small cloves garlic
100 ml olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt or less

Blanch the kale together with the leaves for 3 minutes.
Ground the nuts using a hand-grinder.
Combine all ingredients and blend.
If you have a tall blender that's perfect.
If you have one of those powerful blender then you don't have to ground the nuts separate.
Alternatively chop the greens by hand and add the rest of the ingredients.
Keep the pesto in a clean jar in the fridge.
Also the pesto can be stored in an ice cube tray and defrosted when needed for sandwich spread, pasta bakes topping or used on home-made pizza 🍕

Песто од брокула / Broccoli pesto

This pesto is time saving when comes to making sandwiches, dipping veggies for snack, spreading on pizza or even as a sauce for pasta.
I make it once in a week and it can stay in a glass jar in the fridge for 3 to 4 days easily....

Потребни состојки:

1 главица брокула, околу 300 грама, сварени на пареа
1 рака спанаќ
1 рака магдонос
2 млади кромидчиња
1 рака сецкани бадеми
1 чешне лукче
сок од пола лимон
2 лажици ладно цедено маслиново масло
1 лажица вода
сол и бибер

Ставете ги сите состојки во блендер и блендирајте една минута или додека смесата не се соедини.


1 head broccoli, steamed
1 handful fresh spinach
1 handful parsley
1-2 spring onions
1 handful chopped almonds
1 clove garlic
juice of half lemon
2 Tbsp cold pressed olive oil
1 Tbsp water
salt and pepper

Process all the ingredients in a food processor until it's nice and smooth.
