The folks at Organic Girl asked me if they could send over some of their products and I said "yes, please". They are sponsoring a show on Lifetime TV called "All Mixed Up" and I think it's great that kale, spinach, and other healthy greens are getting the spotlight.
So I did my own version of all-mixed-up by taking some of OG's kale, spinach, and arugula and mixing them all up in a blender with olive oil, garlic, Parmesan cheese,and walnuts to make a gorgeous green pesto, bright in color and fresh flavor. There are so many uses for this tasty dip/sauce/spread - toss with hot pasta or your favorite cooked grains; just say no to mayo and spread on sandwiches for fantastic flavor and color; pesto pizza anyone?
My first recipe is to take homemade or store bought ravioli (mine are homemade with Melissa's Won Ton Wrappers), quick fry them in oil - 2 minutes or so in each side, then serve them on a platter with the 3 Greens Pesto as a fun starter. (Recipe below.)
sun dried tomatoes over the top, garnish with fresh basil and smoked sea salt. Bake about 15 minutes.
Maybe you can include 3 Greens Pesto in your St. Patrick's Day celebration?
3 Greens Pesto
2 cups kale
2 cups spinach
2 cups arugula
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cups walnuts
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
Process all the ingredients in a blender. Add additional oil and/or water if necessary to reach a creamy consistency.
