Broccoli Rabe-Chipotle Pesto

Broccoli Rabe-Chipotle Pesto
Skirt steak marinade, drizzle over omelets, dip fajitas, the possibilities are limitless! This version of a typically Italian sauce is made from blanched broccoli rabe and our smokey Chipotle Olive Oil, giving this pesto a chimichurri-like feel! Recipe By Taylor MacDougall  

Products used: Chipotle Olive Oil, Smoked Applewood Sea Salt


1 bunch Broccoli Rabe, trimmed
¼ cup Hazelnuts, toasted
½ cup Asiago Cheese, grated
3 cloves Garlic
¼ tsp SOOC Smoked Applewood Sea Salt

Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in broccoli rabe and blanch for 3 minutes, then remove from the water with a slotted spoon. Set on paper towels to dry and let cool.

Using a food processor or blender, grind the hazelnuts. Add the dried broccoli rabe, asiago, garlic, Smoked Applewood Sea Salt, lemon juice, and blend. Slowly pour in the Chipotle Olive Oil while blending until smooth.
