Multipurpose Super Green Super Sauce

A key method to minimizing your foods waste at house is finding out to use related substances in different techniques.

I originally designed this sauce as a salad dressing. I had leftover spinach that was wilting, together with a substantial basil plant in the backyard garden. In lieu of pesto, I imagined I’d make a super nutrient-prosperous salad dressing.

Use What You Have

I was influenced by some viral cooking movies demonstrating how to make a “Green Goddess” dressing, employing avocado and parsley. I did not have both of those, so I substituted other inexperienced things.

As a substitute of avocado, I used spinach and olive oil.

Instead of parsley, I applied basil and mint from my herb back garden.

We ate it over our salad for supper, and I had very a bit leftover.

Double Responsibility

The subsequent working day, I determined to attempt the sauce in excess of some cheese tortellini with spinach that I experienced leftover from two times ago. A further wonderful zero waste cooking recipe is born!

This quick to make sauce doubles as a salad dressing/veggie dip/veggie sauce, or a pasta sauce. Delight in!!
