Oregano Pesto Potatoes

2 cups torn-up fresh greens (mustard greens, spinach or similar)
2 cups fresh parsley flat Italian or regular standard
1/2 cup fresh oregano
1/2 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons sliced, toasted almonds or soy nuts
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 garlic garlic cloves, peeled
3 tablespoons olive oil
About 8 medium sized potatoes, peeled and quartered

Combine everything except potatoes in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse blend to chop the greens, then with food processor on, slowly add oil through food chute; process until well blended into a pesto. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 425F. Place potatoes on a baking pan and bake for 20 minutes or until tender, turning as needed. Remove potatoes to a large bowl; add 1/3 cup pesto and roll potatoes to coat. Return potatoes to oven for 5 minutes before serving.

Remaining pesto will store in the refrigerator for up to a week, or can be frozen and used as needed. Or, use it for Pesto Bread:

Slice French bread in thick slices. Brush each slice with melted butter, then spread pesto on the bread and toast until lightly browned.
