Super Green Pesto

Your liver’s main role in life is to detoxify your body from all the toxins you knowingly and unknowingly put into it and to do this it needs your help!

This Super Green Pesto Style sauce is ideal for adding to soups or using as a dip. Watercress contains more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk, and more vitamin C than oranges!


  • 1/4 bag – decent handful baby leaf spinach washed and patted or spun dry
  • 1/4 bag – decent handful watercress washed and patted or spun dry
  • 1 large handful of basil leaves
  • 1 large handful of parsley leaves
  • 1 tbsp cold pressed extra virgin olive oil or hemp or flax seed oil
  • Squeeze of lemon juice to taste


Add all the leaves to a blender or food processor and blend, add the oil and lemon to create a pesto like paste.

If you don’t have a blender you can chop all the ingredients super fine then mix the oil and lemon to create the pesto like paste.
