Pesto Potatoes

20180404_142801

If you have read my last few posts, you will know I got a massive 2.5kg bag of potatoes for 29p last week……I know right….so cheap!  So my task this week was to use them all…lol!  Today I had to use up some leftover vegetables so I decided on pesto Potatoes……this was so delicious, nutritious and a filling meal.

 

Serves 2

4 Maris piper potatoes – cut into bite size pieces (I left skin on, more flavour)

Handful or Broccoli

Baby Spinach

Salt & pepper

Green Pesto – 3 tbsps (see recipe below)

 

Pesto Recipe

clove of garlic crushed

Fresh Basil – large bunch

handful of pine nuts – about 100g

Parmesan Cheese – grated

Olive oil

Lemon juice

  1. Place garlic and basil leaves in a blender and pulse until chopped
  2. Add in the pine nuts (toasted) and parmesan and pulse to blend
  3. Slowly add in some olive oil, just enough to bring it all together, then squeeze in the lemon juice. Serve.

 

Potatoes

  1. Cook potatoes through until soft, you can either boil or steam cook, 4 minutes before you think they are ready, pour in some peas to the potatoes and simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, Steam cook your broccoli and spinach for 3 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes and put into a large bowl, add in the spinach and broccoli
  4. Spoon 3 heaped tbsp of pesto and mix through, season
  5. Serve into a bowl or plate and top with some pine nuts for extra crunch.
