Green Marinara Sauce

Green marinara with pretzels

This one is less of a recipe, more of a throw a bunch of stuff in a blender and eat kind of thing. I However, I’ve had numerous people try it and want to know how I make it so… here it is! This green marinara is a quick and delicious sauce for pasta, vegetables (especially zoodles), salad dressing alternative and even a veggie/cracker dip.

While it tastes great, it also looks like green gloop which means people think it’s gross so there’s more for you to eat! In addition, basil and parsley are natural proven detoxifiers which makes this a perfect easy recipe for Sunday- if ya know what I mean.
