Anne wanted a fairy garden a couple of months ago. We sowed some chia seeds because we have loads. It didn’t sprout for days, then they suddenly appeared, and now we have a bloody forest of the stuff. Neil quite liked it, but I found it a little too bitter as they got bigger. So I made pesto.
Spinach (I used frozen as that’s what I’ve got)
Extra virgin olive oil
There are no quantities as I just bodge everything. This pesto is dairy-free and vegan. Pine nuts are seeds, so it’s also nut-free (Eliza is allergic to nuts).
Start by putting the spinach and chia sprouts in the food processor and turning it on. Slowly add the rest of the ingredients to taste.
