No Waste Pesto

Leave no waste behind with this ingenious (and delicious) recipe, which repurposes pulp to make a savory, earthy pesto. We recommend using leftovers from the Emerald Green juice, but you can substitute them with spin-offs from any of your greener concoctions.


  • 1/4 cup Emerald Green Juice Pulp
  • 1 cup Basil
  • 1 cup Green Onions
  • 2 Garlic, clove
  • 1/4 cup Pumpkin Seeds, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt – or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper, ground – or to taste



Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.


Serve with toast, pasta, crackers, or roasted veggies.
