Green smoothies are super healthy so why not take all of the cleansing ingredients that you would generally throw into a green smoothie, and make a delicious nutrient-dense Green Smoothie Lovers Pesto to serve on your favourite sandwich or pasta? It’s win win and a delicious one at that…
I’ve been reading a lot about green smoothies lately. The next best thing to a nutritious powerhouse that’s the green smoothie and for many people (points finger at self) more palatable is a green pesto. I’m obviously not talking about the store bought stuff – made with vegetable oil and what-not. I’m talking about my all green pesto or as I like to refer to it, the Green Smoothie Lover’s pesto.
It’s obviously a little sandwich-ified with a strong aroma of garlic and cheese, not something you’d generally find in a liquid drink version, but still, it contains more greens than many of us would often be able to eat in a day. It keeps for a few days, making it super easy to spread on a slice of toast in the morning or stuff into your favourite sandwich. In fact, just over the weekend, we tried something similar for breakfast in Melbourne: pesto sourdough topped with grilled haloumi and poached eggs. Yum, really.
PS If you are wondering about the origins of some of the props in this post, a couple of weekends ago I ended up going to Marrickville where at Reverse Garbage I picked up this particular “tabletop” for 50 cents and the books in the shot for $1 each. It is a great place to pick up props, stationery, old books and even cassette tapes!
