As I continue to work within more of the meal plans, I’m finding ways to use old favorites to create new, delicious meals. These lentils bites have long been a solid staple in my repertoire. The same could be said for the broccoli pesto. So what happens when you combine the two? You get this delicious bowl!
I’ll forever add and swap different greens into the pesto. I love broccoli because you get a small bit of the broccoli flavor but it’s not overwhelming. Plus, it’s a great way to reduce the amount of basil during the cooler months (or as I call it, the non-basil growing season).
Play around with the amount of the herbs. I sometimes go parsley only if I don’t want to buy basil. Chives and/or dill all work as well.
