Broccoli and Parsley Pesto

This is a simple and mega-delicious recipe.
Prepare to go wild for your veggies, cause this pesto is the perfect pairing!


Cashews (finely ground)
Parsley (fresh and a whole bunch of it!)

Basil

Done and done, just like that!

*** I used broccoli in mine because I had some extra left over from a recipe and was curious. It's kind like a way to hide veggies in your pesto! Soooo clever. Also nuts are expensive when money is real tight I use half cashews half raw peanuts. Nuts can be sooo expensive so be careful how much you use, find tricks to cut those costs!
