Multipurpose Super Green Super Sauce


A essential method to minimizing your food waste at home is discovering to use related elements in diverse approaches.

I initially built this sauce as a salad dressing. I experienced leftover spinach that was wilting, along with a substantial basil plant in the yard. In lieu of pesto, I believed I’d make a tremendous nutrient-abundant salad dressing.

Use What You Have

I was inspired by some viral cooking videos displaying how to make a “Green Goddess” dressing, employing avocado and parsley. I did not have either of individuals, so I substituted other eco-friendly things.

Instead of avocado, I employed spinach and olive oil.

As an alternative of parsley, I employed basil and mint from my herb backyard.

We ate it more than our salad for dinner, and I experienced quite a bit leftover.

Double Duty

The next working day, I made the decision to attempt the sauce about some cheese tortellini with spinach that I had leftover from two times ago. Yet another amazing zero waste cooking recipe is born!

This easy to make sauce doubles as a salad dressing/veggie dip/veggie sauce, or a pasta sauce. Take pleasure in!!
