I love pestos because they pack a lot of concentrated nutrients into a highly flavorful punch! This is  a bold pesto that is great over whole wheat pasta or salmon


Units Scale

1 bunch broccoli rabe, tough stems removed and coarsely chopped
1/3 cup walnuts
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper, to taste


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a sprinkle of salt.  Drop the broccoli rabe in to the boiling water and simmer for about 2 minutes, until bright green and tender. Drain the greens and rinse under cold water to  cool.

2. In a food processor pulse the broccoli rabe, walnuts and parmesan until coarsely chopped.  While the food processor is running slowly add in  the olive oil until smooth.  Add the red pepper and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.  Pulse until combined.
