I am not a big fan of broccoli. But Aj loves it. I make broccoli stir fry every week. When I saw this in the cook book, I wanted to give it a try. I tried a bit after I finished making and just loved the taste a lot. It was lemony and tangy which I loved the most. Its very easy and made quickly as well. Try this healthy pesto for an alternate for the usual pesto. Here the weather is chilled and it rains everyday and when ever I touch the camera, its becoming dark as if its 6 o’clock in the evening. Sigh. Yesterday also I was photographing something for the blog and until I prepare, it was bright, the moment I went to click, it started raining. I was praying it should not rain atleast until I finish, but no. Its going to be like this for a while here in SG as its the rainy season now!
