  • 1 bunch of watercress (enough to loosely pack your food processor)
  • 1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil
  • Macadamia nuts or pine nuts, toasted
  • Garlic, I use 3-4 cloves but I like a lot
  • Pecorino Cheese (or parmesan)
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Pinch of Salt


Add all ingredients except for olive oil to your food processor, blend thoroughly.  While blending slowly pour in the olive oil until desired consistency.

In the picture I served this over my savory oatmeal — it was absolutely delicious.  It is also delicious served over pasta or rice, or fish or meat.
