I love this green sauce so much I want to put it on everything!
During shelter in place I have been feeling a bit lazy about getting my leafy greens in. And some times I am just really not in a salad or sauté mood.
This green sauce is excellent "vegetable insurance" to make sure I get a dose of nutrient density with my meal. All it takes is a little bit of effort up front for a big payoff later.
Ingredients: 1 bunch cilantro ½ bunch parsley 1 bunch basil 1 cup arugula ⅓ cup hemp seeds ¼ cup nutritional yeast ½ tsp salt + more to taste ¼ tsp granulated garlic ¼ cup olive oil 3 tsp vinegar 2 tsp lemon/lime
Instructions: Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor until well combined. About 4 minutes.
Enjoy as a dip, spread, pesto or sauce!
Keeps in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Ways I like to enjoy the super easy super green sauce: -Green sauce chicken salad by mixing chopped chicken in this sauce and having it on crackers or on top of a salad. -Spread on a sandwich. -Pesto on pizza. -Dip for crackers or vegetables. -Spread in a wrap.
This recipe is also very flexible! Sometimes I will add avocado for a more creamy texture. If you are not a cilantro fan, you can also swap it out for extra basil or arugula.
