Celery Pesto

salmon-w-pesto

This pesto is a delicious way to use up all the inner leaves and stalks in a head of celery. Try it, I promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Pulse the following ingredients in a food processor or blender until just short of being a puree:

1 cup celery leaves & tender inner stalks
1 cup green onion, white & green parts
2 cups parsley
1/2 cup roasted garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil in slow stream just until mixture holds together.

Use pesto to make:

  • Sandwich spread in place of mayo.
  • Milder sandwich spread: mix pesto and mayo.
  • Spoon over fish, chicken, steak, pork, or turkey.
  • Salad Dressing: mix pesto and mayo, add a little fresh lemon juice, thin with buttermilk. Taste and add sea salt and/or black pepper to taste.
  • Pasta Sauce: mix pesto and extra-virgin olive oil. Taste and add sea salt and/or black pepper to taste.
  • Garden Fresh Tomato Soup: mix a little pesto into Tomato Soup.

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.
