Ingredients

Super Food Walnut Pesto Recipe: ( 4-6 servings)

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil ( or olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons white miso
  • 12 garlic cloves, start with one
  • ¼ cup water
  • 34 cups baby superfood greens ( baby kale, arugula, spinach, chard)
  • squeeze of lemon to taste

Bento Box: ( 2 servings )

  • 4 ounces dry soba noodles  ( sub GF noodles)
  • ½ cup shredded cabbage
  • ¼ cup sliced radishes
  • 1 cup of power greens
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • olive oil and lemon for drizzling
  • optional additions: edamame, sunflower sprouts, avocado, snow peas

Instructions

Begin by getting your soba noodles cooking, cook according to directions.

Make the Superfood Walnut Pesto: Place walnuts, miso, oil, garlic and water into a food processor and pulse repeatedly. Add the power greens and pulse.  Adjust consistency by adding more water if you like. Add a squeeze of lemon, pulse, and taste. Add more garlic, lemon or salt to taste. (The miso is satisfyingly salty so I didn’t add salt.)

Toss the noodles with ⅓-½  of the walnut pesto ( you will have enough walnut pesto for 4-6 servings).

Place noodles in a bento box with a handful of greens, shredded cabbage, walnuts and radishes. ( Feel free to add avocado, or other veggies) Drizzle veggies with a little olive oil, lemon and salt. Pack it up with a set of chopsticks and you are good to go.

Notes

Superfood Walnut Pesto keeps for 5 days in the fridge.
