Celery Leaf Walnut Pesto Sauce

Amy Palanjian | Delicious Living

This celery leaf walnut pesto sauce wonderfully embraces the concept of repurposed food waste. Highlighting leftover celery leaves, the sauce also incorporates zesty lemon with hints of nuttiness. The sauce can serve as a great dip for Cauliflower Buffalo Bites.

  1. Add celery leaves, garlic, salt, walnuts, parmesan and lemon juice to a blender or food processor. Process to combine. With the motor running, pour in the olive oil, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, until very smooth.
  2. Serve in a bowl as a dipping sauce for Caulifower Buffalo Bites, or use as a sauce for pizza or flatbread or in any recipe that calls for pesto.
