Broccoli Pesto

Most people associate pesto with basil, but it can be made with any number of green herbs, or even vegetables. This version, made with broccoli, is perfect on pasta, tastes great as a topping for grilled tofu, gets glowing reviews on grilled chicken or fish, and even works as a salad dressing. We like to use it on just about everything!
