  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 head, cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/2 C, pistachios
  • 1/2 C, toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp, ground cumin
  • 1/2 lime, juice + zest
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • approximately 3/4 C extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 C fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly coat florets in oil, and sprinkle with salt. Spread in single layer onto parchment/baking sheet, and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until tender and slightly brown on edges.
  2. In blender or food processor, pulse nuts into a course sand. Add herbs, cumin, agave, lime, about 1/2 cup of oil. Blend until incorporated, spreadable, but not completely smooth. Add salt to taste, and oil if needed. (I like a bit of texture to my pesto, but you can blend it until your ideal consistency is achieved!)
  3. Toss florets and spinach with pesto, until evenly coated. Serve warm, room temperature, or chilled. Excellent with Sasha's garlic sauce and tomatoes!
