When my vegetable bin still hosts an abundance of Eatwell greens the day before the delivery of a new Eatwell basket, I create The Anything Green Pesto Sauce. It’s always different, always delicious, and incredibly simple to make.
Take whatever greens you want out of your vegetable bin. (The pesto sauce I just made included lettuce, arugula, green garlic, mustard greens, turnip greens, and parsley.)
Slice the vegetable mix up a bit (stems and all), wash and spin them in your salad spinner, and add to your food processor. If there is no green garlic already in the vegetable mix, add some garlic. (It’s not necessary, but you may also want add some pine nuts and Parmesan cheese.)
Add enough olive oil that you estimate will convert your veggies to sauce- like consistency. Turn on the food processor and let it transform your mix into a pesto sauce. Add more olive oil if necessary. Any pesto sauce that you won’t eat in a few days, you can put in separate small jars for freezing.
