Asparagus Pesto
Makes 2 Cups
1 C Asparagus, steamed
2 C Basil, loosely packed
1 C Parsley, flat leaf & loosely packed
1/2 C Pine nuts
1/4 C Nutritional yeast (this is going to give it that cheesy flavor)
3 Garlic cloves
1/4 C Lemon juice
1/8 C Sprouts (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place all pesto ingredients except EVOO in a food processor.
While processing add EVOO to the blade slowly and stop
processing at a paste-like consistency. Chill if not using immediately.
Serve on crackers, or on slices of cucumber as an hors d’oeuvres or use as a tasty sandwich spread or as a pasta sauce.

Enjoy a taste of spring!
Pesto tossed with brown rice pasta shells
and topped with sun-dried tomatoes,
basil chiffonade, pine nuts and cracked pepper.
It’s delicious!
