As a mom, I’m always looking for ways to get my family to eat nutrient-rich foods. I make smoothies often, where I pack as many greens as can fit into my blender, along with the other ingredients. My greens of choice is Earthbound Farm Organic Power Greens, which is a blend of baby spinach, baby red and green chards, and baby kale. It’s definitely aptly named since it’s chock-full of vitamins and minerals. I really like that it’s triple washed and ready to eat too! I’m all for less prep work in the kitchen!
I get the big bags of Earthbound Farm Organic Power Greens at my local wholesale warehouse when I can. I’ll usually freeze one for smoothies and leave another fresh to add into scrambles, sandwiches, and soups. I got the idea to try Earthbound Farm Organic Power Greens in a pesto after seeing a recipe for kale pesto. As there is baby kale in the blend, I thought it would work even better since baby kale is more tender and mild than its mature counterpart. Let me tell you, it turned out better than I’d hoped! The pesto is delicious on so many things, like sandwiches, pasta, crusty bread, etc.
With all of the end of summer heirlooms in abundance right now, I thought I’d make a tomato and pesto tart with the power green pesto and some of the puff pastry I keep stashed in the freezer. The fact that I’ve made this tart five times in the last two weeks has to tell you how much my family loves this tart! My kids say this tart tastes like pizza, which is one of their favorite foods, so I take it as a very big compliment!
I hope you give this pesto and tart a try and enjoy it as much as we did! What’s your favorite way to get in your daily greens?Print
