Fridge Pesto


Auckland Nutritionist Larissa Beeby's fridge pesto

Fridge Pesto!


  • 3 cups of greens (I start with the top stalks and leaves of a celery and then make up the rest with whatever I can find in the fridge or garden – think kale, spinach, basil, coriander, parsley and even broccoli stalks)
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ~1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1 lemon squeezed
  • and a pinch of salt and pepper


1.  Place everything in your food processor, and process until everything is finely chopped.

2. Spoon into a jar and press down firmly.

3. Top with a layer of olive oil and keep in the fridge.

4. ┬áThis doesn’t last long in our house so is gone within a week. But will easily keep in the fridge for a few weeks and even in the freezer!
