vegan and family friendly pesto, to boost your kids with greens without they even notice ;-) !
and without forgetting proteins, fatty acids, omega 3 and other important minerals like zinc and iron among others.
about 70gr (depending how much greens you have at hand!)
1 or 2 avocados
1 cup green peas (frozen)
1 big handful of dark leafy greens mixed like :kale,dark kale,spinach,rucula(tha one you might want to add it little by little because can give a too strong taste), etc..
2 handful fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon pine nuts
1 tablespoon hamp seeds
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 or 2 tablepoons of water
salt & pepper at your taste
5 tablespoons olive oil (at the end)
1 clove of garlic (optional)
I use one little jar as a portion for four/five people and I mix it with whatever whole grain, or with your favourite pasta type.
once you drain the grain or the pasta spare just a littel bit of the cooking water, then add the pesto and stir it with a spoon or fork until is even.
you can also use it as a spread/condiment for the sallad!
