130: Asparagus Pesto

I never thought I’d get tired of grilled asparagus, but I’m definitely starting to. I decided to try Asparagus Pesto instead.

I microwaved some asparagus to cook them, rather than boil them, because I was cooking them the day before I actually made the pesto. The next day, I blended them together with some garlic, walnuts, olive oil, and some lemon juice. I omitted the Parmesan cheese as I always do, but I didn’t think to reduce the amount of olive oil in proportion. That didn’t really matter, though. I tossed it with some whole wheat pasta.

I don’t have any good pictures of this. It was fine. It… tasted like asparagus with some seasonings. No surprise there, I guess. You do need to like asparagus as a dominant flavor to enjoy this. I got a little tired of eating it toward the end since I split it between me and Alex (it definitely feeds 4-6 people). I’d probably do this again if I bought asparagus that I wasn’t sure what to do with. I also thought it was a pretty decent vegetarian meal.
