Asparagus pesto is a flavorful spread you can use on juuuuust about anything. Chicken, sandwiches, crackers, pasta, rice, quinoa, eggs, tacos… Like, the list is nearly endless.


  • 1 pound of asparagus

  • ½ cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 tablespoon oregano

  1. Chop your asparagus into 1-1.5 inch pieces. Cook until tender over medium heat in a skillet with the chicken broth, about 8 minutes.
  2. While cooking asparagus, toast your pine nuts in a skillet over medium heat. Stir frequently, so they don’t burn.
  3. Add cooked asparagus and chicken broth, and the rest of the ingredients to a food processor or blender. Process 3-5 minutes until you reach a smooth, pesto-like consistency.
