This easy, beautiful pesto recipe is absolutely bursting with fresh microgreen flavor.

Once you’ve mastered the method you can add and adjust the ingredients to your own taste.

Makes approximately 1 cup

  • 2 cups of microgreens (I use Broccoli or Pea Shoots)

  • 1 cup of basil

  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed

  • 1/2 lemon squeezed

  • 1/4 cup of roasted pine nuts

  • 1/2 cup of olive oil

  • Salt, pepper


  1. In a blender, add the microgreens, basil, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Blend to a spreadable paste.

  2. Adjust flavors – add salt, pepper, olive oil and more lemon juice to reach the consistency and taste you desire.

  3. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight, sterilized container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Other additions: 1/3 cup of parmesan. Spinach or kale to replace basil.
