Our new little arrival is almost 7 weeks! Time is flying by and I am finally getting to the point where I can do a little more these days. Today, I am making a big batch of pesto from loads of basil we got over the past week from our local CSA.
We love pesto. I enjoy adding other greens to our pestos. Today, I am adding some cilantro and parsley. Cilantro is an excellent detoxing green and I love to use it fresh, especially in salads and pestos. Parsley is an excellent source of minerals. These both add a delicious taste to pestos and I'm looking forward to enjoying ours this weekend.
A few other greens I have added are arugula, radish greens, and mitzuna. Have some fun experimenting with different greens to come up with some fresh zippy pestos you and your family can enjoy!
