- The wrong version of Pea Shoot Pesto from The Intentional Minimalist website was included in Thursday’s recipe for Steamed Egg Pea Shoot Pesto and Fromage Blanc Croissant. Here is the correct version:

Pea Shoot Pesto

Local walnuts

Farm fresh local garlic

Farm fresh local pea shoots

Broccoli rabe greens

Local olive oil

Local verjus

Sea salt

Add 1/2 c. walnuts to glass base of food processor and puree into a powder. Remove nut powder from base and reserve.

Chop 4 cloves garlic and add garlic to glass base of food processor and pulse. Remove 2 c. pea shoot leaves from stems and 2 c. broccoli rabe greens from stems. Add nut powder to garlic in base of food processor with pea shoots and broccoli rabe greens. Pulse for a few seconds, then slowly add 3 T. olive oil, 1 T. verjus and 1/4 t. sea salt. Pulse until smooth.

Place pesto in a glass jar and seal with a lid. Store pesto in refrigerator and use within three days or freeze.
