    1. To make the pesto, throw the olive oil, lemon juice, basil, broccoli, pine nuts, miso (or Parmesan), garlic, salt, and pepper into your KitchenAid® Power Plus® Blender. Secure the lid, remove the center lid cap, and insert the tamper. Turn the variable speed dial to 11, and process for 20 to 30 seconds, using the tamper to guide the ingredients through the blades until rustically combined but not completely smooth.
    2. In a large bowl, use your hands to lightly toss the zucchini noodles with the diced cucumber and broccoli until well combined.
    3. Gently massage 1 cup (230 g) of the pesto through the zucchini noodles until evenly coated, and add additional pesto gradually to your preference. As you massage the fruits and vegetables will release water, making the pesto easier to work with. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set out four plates, and swirl equal portions onto plates, and toss with hemp seeds. Serve immediately passing any remaining pesto at the table.
