Celery Pesto





     If you ever end up with an extra bunch of celery that is about to go bad, then just whip together some pesto !!!  This was literally a 5 minute project of just throwing everything in the Food Processor ( love that)!  This recipe made about 3 1/2 cups, so I froze 3 cups with a cup in each ziplock baggie, which makes it so easy to thaw out for a pasta night for two!!!  Voila  :)

Ingredients~
5 cups celery
1/3 cup raw blanched Almonds
1/4 cup EVOO
2 heaping teaspoon diced jarred garlic
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan
1 teaspoon lite salt
1 cup carrots
4 green onions
Sriracha to taste

     Blend all together in the Food Processor.  Enjoy over your favorite pasta!  For a 1/4 cup serving, it is 80 calories, 2g carbs, and 2g protein.
