Radish Mix Microgreen Pesto

Radish Mix Microgreen Pesto

Nutritionally dense, adding a handful of microgreens to this easy-peasy radish pesto recipe can kick your immune system into overdrive! Green, fresh, and full of flavour, you’ll never reach for boring pesto again!

You’ll need:

  • 1.5 cups frozen peas (remove from freezer and thaw for 15 minutes)

  • 1 container New Life Microgreens (radish mix)

  • 3 cups fresh spinach

  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan (or any other hard cheese)

  • 1/4 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil

  • juice of two small lemons

  • 3 cloves garlic (or to taste!)

  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions:

  • Put all the ingredients (less lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper) in a food processor or blender.

  • Add lemon juice and olive oil little bit by little bit whilst blending until it reaches your desired consistency. It should be scoopable and not runny.

  • Serve with toasted seed bread and top with more microgreens, lemon juice, slices of avocado, or a poached egg.

  • Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days, if you can make it last that long!

  • Instead of almonds, you can use any other nut, such as pine nuts, cashews, or even macadamia nuts. The same with the cheese – you can use any hard cheese, like pecorino, if you don’t have parmesan.
