My morning power in the spring is greens. I leave the cereal for other days and start my morning with something green: smoothie, pesto, pie, etc.
So here is this morning plate:
- 1 egg from my neighbor’s chicken
- 1 slice of breads with seeds
- 3-4 table spoons of light green pesto
If you wonder what a light green pesto is here are the ingredients:
- 1 hand fresh spinach
- 3 hands wild green garlic
- Juice from 1 lemon
- Juice from 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil
Mix everything in a blender and you have a light pesto. I keep it in the fridge for a few days. I love to eat it spread on a slide of bread, or on top of everything.
As long as I have fresh wild garlic and spinach I am in heaven.
I go in the forest to get the wild green garlic and nettles. I am making pies, smoothies and of course light pesto.

I bet that’s good with the garlic greens. I’ll have to give it a try, but it’s hard to imagine without a wee bit of basil.
I am not a big fan of basil, so, I tend to forget about it in all my pesto.
That’s great that you have access to fresh greens and newly-laid eggs! Eating food fresh from the woods or from chickens is a real treat.
I love that you used orange in the pesto as well as the lemon. There’s nothing quite like the wild garlic.
This sounds great!
Looks healthy and delicious! A great way to start the day.
Such a simple, healthy and delicious recipe. Thank you for sharing.
You are welcome.
mmmmmmmmm, that looks delicous!
Eggs are Nature’s best kept secret. 🥚🍃
Wow seems yummy , i have to take a try
This sounds great!
Looks fantastic!! 😋
That pesto sounds delicious. We don’t have wild garlic here and I wouldn’t know a wild nettle if I fell over it – I have domestic ones in my garden but they’re still under snow… Could I use chives? What could replace the nettles? Thanks for such an interesting recipe!
I never tried with chives, so I can’t recommend it. Nettles could be replace with spinach.
I may have to try this! It looks delish and nutritious !
Looks so yummy!
Never thought about putting these together! I’ve got some pesto might try this
Having eggs is always a good start to the morning
Looks like you got a deadly combination there CWT, and you have a neighbour with a poultry farm – hope you continue to enjoy some more fresh treats!
Thank you. I will!
I will have to try pesto with fried egg. This looks incredible!
