Default Delicious Green HFLC Lunch

I've eaten this two days in a row now, and will probably have it again tomorrow. It's strangely addictive. I leave out nuts, to keep the protein down.

Broccoli Pesto with Ricotta

1 1/2 cups raw broccoli
1 oz Parmesan, grated
1 small clove garlic
3 T olive oil (use one whose flavor you love, it's a big part of this dish)
1 T water
1/4 cup whole milk ricotta

Whirl the broccoli, Parmesan, and garlic in the food processor until very finely chopped. Add olive oil and water and blend into a smooth paste. Scoop into a bowl and top with the ricotta. Makes a perfect lunch.
