For 4 people

Preparation: 5 min
Cooking: 0 min


-1 25 g handful of spinach or chard leaves,
-1 handful of 25 g young nettle shoots. Take only the ends of the nettle, with gloves!
-1 clove of garlic,
-1 sprig of mint (optional),
-40 g of almond powder,
-30 g of parmesan,
-3 tablespoons of olive oil (2 to mix + 1 to adjust),
-1 tablespoon of Grasse spirulina,
-1 pinch of salt.


Remove the ribs from the chard. Wash and dry them.

Cut the garlic clove into small pieces.

Clean the young nettle shoots and dry them.

Place all the ingredients in a blender and keep just a tablespoon of olive oil, which will be used to adjust the consistency of the pesto once blended.

It's ready, to enjoy with a good organic sourdough bread or with pasta.
