Green is my favorite color. It’s a neutral color, and doesn’t imply that I am manly nor girly. I tend to migrate towards green foods, possibly because I like the color and because of the nutrients in them. I had a green themed evening the other night and it all started with these.
Dinner for the night was all green as well. I cooked my asparagus in this stuff, which happens to be a new to me item.
The oil itself was clear, and didn’t have much of a flavor. I liked it because it allowed the asparagus to really POP with its natural flavor. Cool stuff this oil. I then put Bill to use for the first time making something other than a smoothie.
- 2 cups of spinach
- 6 large basil leaves (or more!)
- 2 small/medium cloves of garlic
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of cashews
- salt & pepper to taste!
Combine all ingredients into a food processor (I used my blender) and combine until you get a desired consistency! I added water to mine to thin it out.
This stuff was great, a fun new sauce to spice up my pastaaaaas.
On a completely unrelated note, this is what my front porch looks like.
