Earth Day Slow Food style- with Yummy Pea Pesto!

Because I always love hearing how much people love Lifetime Products, I just HAD to contact the great woman mentioned in my last post, and hear more about our tables! :)

Heather (shown above working at an Earth Day event with her little boy-- a shy guy in this photo!) is with Slow Food Utah and is powering a "Good, Clean, Fair food movement", a global organization with grassroots efforts to link people with information about the food in their community and the environment. One of Slow Food's lesser known initiatives is the "Slow Food in Schools", a garden-to-table program that helps children develop an appreciation for real, wholesome food and an understanding of sustainable food practices. 

Heather told me more about her Lifetime 6 foot fold-in-half  table and how she uses it:

 "I love your tables. I bought it to use as an extra table for work events, but I seem to use it for everything now - impromptu dinner guests, craft projects, loaning it out to friends etc. The folding feature sold me on the product along with the handles that make it that much easier to carry with kids."

The Slow Food Utah website mentions that one of their objectives is to "awaken" people to the enjoyment and health benefits of quality food.  Her booth certainly did the trick for me when I tried their Pea Pesto!! WOW! See the recipe for this delicious dip below:

Pea Pesto

Shown here with cherry tomatoes. (Great as a bruschetta topping or this amount is perfect to toss with a pound of cooked pasta, topped with diced tomatoes.)

1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas
2 large garlic cloves
1/2 cup pine nuts (2 ounce)- or other nuts. (Heather mentioned you can also use almonds)
1/2 cup Parmesan plus additional for serving
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Cook peas on the stove or in a microwave according to package directions, then drain well.
With food processor running, drop in garlic and finely chop. Turn off motor and add peas, nuts, cheese, salt, and pepper then process until finely chopped. With motor running, add oil, blending until incorporated.

Enjoy!
