Plus, it's super easy to make. Steam the broccoli a bit. Add all the pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender. Then dump everything in a bowl and mix it together - how easy is that? It's so easy I forgot to take pictures of it all! There weren't that many steps to document!
I made this for a St. Patrick's themed going away party at work (full of a ton of non-vegans) and it was a big hit!
1 Cup Edamame
1 Small - Medium Sized Head of Broccoli
1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
1 Cup Greens
1 Cup Basil
1/2 Cup Pine Nuts
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Cloves Garlic
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 3-4 as an entree
Chop up the broccoli so that you are left with small pieces of the heads - remove all the stems. You don't want the pieces of broccoli to be too much bigger than the edamame so that everything blends together well. Add the broccoli to a pot with enough water to cover about 1/2 of the broccoli. If you have a steaming basket feel free to use it. In that case the water should be below the basket. Cook for about 5 minutes, just so that the broccoli can be easily pierced with a fork.
While that is cooking add all the pesto ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Slice open an avocado, remove the pit, and slice the avocado into cubes.
If you have large greens, chop them up into smaller pieces.
Add everything to a bowl and mix together. Serve and Enjoy!
