Purslane & green pea sauce Ⓥ

Leave a comment

Purslane peas pestoPurslane is in season and there was a bunch in my fridge that I used to make this green sauce. It’s a wonderful and simple way to use your purslane for a delicious and healthy pasta sauce. You can also use the sauce as appetizer or dip with raw veggies, in buddha or salad bowl or on toast.


  • 1 bunch of purslane (2 handfuls)
  • 1 handful of thawed green peas
  • 1 handful of cashew nuts (or other nuts / seeds)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove (optional)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)


Blend everything in a high speed blender (or immersion blender) until a creamy consistency, salt and pepper to taste.
