Watercress Pesto Powerhouse


Watercress is one of my favourite ingredients, I love it’s vibrant punchy flavour, and it is packed full of vitamins and minerals, in particular calcium, iodine, vitamin K and C. This is a slight variation to a traditional pesto sauce, instead I have used fresh watercress and a little lemon zest to do a little more zing. This pesto can be used in so many ways, stirred through rice, pasta or as a potato salad dressing.

Time: 5 minutes

Serves: 4  

Gluten Free, Vegan 


4 tablespoons pine nuts

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Handful (approx. 4og) watercress

1 small clove garlic

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, grated

Pinch sea salt


  • Place all ingredients into a jug and using a stick blender, blend all the ingredients together for 10-15 seconds until just smooth.
