Prep Time:




Pumpkin pesto
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, about 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon rice miso
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon herbamare
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil or other cooking oil
  • 1 head kale, chopped
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped
  • 3-4 leaves fresh basil, chopped
  • handful raw pine nuts


  1. To make pesto: process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Putting it all together: heat coconut oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Once melted, add eggs and mix with a fork. Allow to cook for 5-6 minutes,turning with fork every minute or so. Add kale, spinach, and 3-4 spoon fulls of pesto to the mix and continue to cook until desired consistency is met. I like my scrambled eggs well-done so for me, this was a total of 11 minutes. Add extra basil and pine nuts, mix to combine and serve.
