Description

Kids (at least the ones I know) love pasta so I always make several varieties of pesto whenever I have time in hand. Store it in the refrigerator and pull it out whenever you are in a hurry and can’t be very creative, mix it with pasta, spread it on bread or add as a dip for veggies. My daughter loves fava beans and fava bean pesto is always available in my kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Fresh Hulled Fava Beans
  • ¼ cups Green Pumpkin Seeds
  • ¼ cups Lemon Juice
  • ½ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ cups Olive Oil

Preparation

Put all the ingredients (except oil) in a blender or food processor and turn it on. Pulse to combine and reach a paste. While the blade is still moving slowly pour the oil into the food processor through the opening on the lid. Continue processing. In the end you should get a smooth (or a little granular, depending on your taste) pesto. Spread it on the toast or mix it with pasta.
