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 an 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.
