MATCHA PESTO

 

Double the green, double the flavor. Pesto is a mouthful of bright summer. Combine it with our smooth, earthy and semi-sweet Matcha, and you’ve found yourself with a dangerous duo. Packed with basil, mint, spinach, matcha and pistachios, these magical green ingredients provide high levels of chlorophyll and taste incredible. When combined, you’ve got a versatile, beautiful green sauce for pasta, chicken or fish. You can even serve it on its own as a dip! It’s just that good.

 

INGREDIENTS 

Serves 1
  • 3g (1 ½ tsp) matcha
  • ½ cup mint leaves, packed
  • ½ cup spinach leaves
  • 1 cup basil leaves, packed

  • ¾ cup pine nuts and/or pistachios 
  • 2 spring onions, roughly chopped 
  • ½ cup EV olive oil
  • 30g grated parmesan cheese (or vegan cheese)
  • Pasta for serving (gluten free pasta if you would like it gluten free)

 

     

    METHOD
