Amaranth pizza

Last week we received amaranth from our veggie basket from Irv and Shelley's, I figured it would make a great pesto.

Like a traditional pesto, this is made with garlic but not the nuts or cheese.

Start by blanching the leaves in boiling salted water for a minute until soft.

Puree the leaves, with garlic, EVOO, salt and pepper.

Spread this on pizza or add to pasta.

While I was at it I made a dessert pie. This I spread with chocolate peanut sauce from Cacao Sampaka from Spain. (Cacao Sampaka is one of the best chocolate destinations in the world. Whenever in Spain it's a must destination.)
