A couple of weekends ago, Husband surprised the kids and I with a spontaneous day trip to Dallas. We live in the suburbs and don’t get into the “big city” very often so this was quite the adventure. Before we set out, I checked Happy Cow to find a plant-based friendly restaurant. We decided on a very interesting looking health food chain called True Food Kitchen.

That is, until I read a recipe for spinach pesto. Hold the phone! You can make pesto from ingredients BESIDE basil?! This got my gears turning. I wondered if I could make pesto out of vegetables that aren’t of the leafy persuasion. Continue reading “Broccoli Hemp Pesto Pasta”
