Use this pesto as a topping for Quinoa and Herbed Potato Loaf.
Blanch or steam the asparagus until al dente and still green. Refresh in cool water. Cut the asparagus into 1-inch pieces and place in a food processor. Add the garlic, pistachios, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Pulse the processor to make sure mixture is not over-mixed while gradually adding olive oil. The pesto should be processed but not entirely smooth, depending on preference.
