Collard Greens Pesto
Better swaps make enjoying the foods that you love that much more lovable.
This mac & cheese gets an overhaul with Chickpea pasta, collard green pesto and just a little shaving of Parmigiano Reggiano on top and the use of veggie stock to cut down on oil. Flavor is on point! The addition of the collard greens and lemon makes the flavor profile of this dish so much more interesting.
Just make sure you wash those greens really well with Eat Cleaner, cuz leafy greens are the number one cause of foodborne illness. Want the recipe? Well here you go! You’re welcome!
