Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now….We’ve got the groove!
That’s right folks, many of you are already getting ready to pack up and start traveling for the Christmas so I thought I would share another super fast homemade gift idea.
I pinky promise that all you need to do it pick up the ingredients, toss them in your food processor or mini-chopper and place the resulting pesto into a nice container.
The super sweet part is that this pesto tastes different than the run of the mill version so it will make pesto lovers from the former haters.
1 cup canned artichoke heart, drained and quartered
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup fresh parsley
2 large cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
Toss all ingredients into the food processor or mini-chopper and pulse until blended.
Consider using this pesto as a spread on pizza, chicken, pasta and more!
