Anti viral oregano pesto

Oregano Pesto

 This recipe from Kami McBride is a great side for adding to pasta, topping a salad or some cooked greens.  I would also put it with eggs, on toast and as a lovely dip.  The oregano gives it anti-viral properties, so is helpful if there is sickness around that you want to keep at bay!  Eat on the same day as the avocado will brown if left too long.


  • 2-3 cups cups leafy greens (spinach, salad mix, rocket..)
  • 1/2 cup fresh oregano
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup cucumber
  • 1/2 cup cashew
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Blend oil, nuts, garlic and cucumber, then add greens, oregano, avocado, tamari, salt & pepper.  Blend well.
