Broccoli Pesto for Bread or As Side Dish
35 mins (prep 25, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
3-6 servings
Would you believe this is great? And you can eat it with bread, especially your own fresh bread? This is also a great side dish with any meal. You could substitute the cheese with another flavourful type, and you could also use toasted almonds instead of hazelnuts, or leave out the nuts entirely. As a dip: use all ingredients. As a side dish: serve warm and use ingredients to taste, but lemon juice is a must! Taste it in the processor -- your taste has the final say!
