Easy Lemon Pesto

Every week I like to roast up a big batch of veggies to get us started for the week. After roasting veggies for many months, I have to admit that we were getting bored of them.

I needed a simple and nutritious way to liven up roast veggies until spring produce becomes available in our part of the world.

Pesto to the rescue!

Easy-Way-Jazz-Up-VeggiesPesto is a super easy way to jazz up roasted veggies or grilled meat.

Pesto is traditionally made with pine-nuts, garlic, fresh basil and olive oil but there are many variations out there. Iíve seen recipes that swap out the basil for different greens like parsley or kale and the pine-nuts are replaced with different nuts and seeds.

Today Iím going to share with you a recipe for light and zesty pesto served over roasted broccoli and cauliflower. It was a hit at our house and is toddler approved.

The next day we spread some on our roast chicken. Divine! Put some out at your next BBQ and your guests will be impressed.

The Easy Lemon Pesto with Roast Veggies is one of the recipes from my new Spring Salad Guide.
