Nothing says springtime like fresh herbs growing on our balcony. Right now we have parsley, thyme and basil, and I am enjoying incorporating them into my cooking. I had some fun in the kitchen today whipping up a pesto with some parsley and basil from our garden and some baby kale I picked up at the farmer’s market. Added in some olive oil, garlic, blanched almonds, salt, and mixed it all up in the Vita Mix. Turned out great – can’t wait to eat it on Tuesday night! My pesto has no cheese – and it is so flavourful that you don’t miss it at all.
Here’s this week’s meal plan:
Monday – out
Tuesday – Salad with baby swiss chard and baby kale, pesto pasta with white beans, steamed broccoli on the side.
Wednesday – Choosing Raw’s Lentil Loaf, potato salad, steamed french green beans
Thursday – same as Wednesday
Friday – out!
