Broccoli Pesto

A yummy "pesto" that's great on its own, on pasta or as a dip.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Defrost broccoli.
  2. Heat olive oil in skillet. Add garlic and cook over medium heat until golden brown.
  3. Add chilies or pepper flakes and broccoli. Sauté for several minutes until broccoli is very soft.
  4. Break up broccoli chunks and add water as needed. Salt to taste.
  5. When done, the pesto should be a rough puree.
  6. Note: this "pesto" is just as yummy as our favorite fatty version, but less calories and more veggie bang for your buck!
