Anti Aging Recipe: Watercress Pesto

I love the peppery bite the Watercress gives in this Pesto recipe and it is so easy to make- literally 3 steps! Don’t forget that when purchasing Olive Oil,  that Dr. Perricone recommends using Spanish varieties as they tend to have higher levels of a powerful antioxidant, Hydroxytyrosol.

  • 2 cups Watercress
  • 1 ½ cups Basil
  • 1cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Dr. Perricone recommends Spanish Olive Oil)
  • ¾ cups Parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz. Pine Nuts
  • 2 TBS Lemon Juice
  • 2 TBS White Cooking Wine
  • 3 TBS Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper
  1. Combine the watercress, basil, cheese, garlic and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped
  2. Add the liquid ingredients until fully incorporated and smooth.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.

You can use this pesto as a marinade, a dipping sauce or spread. Enjoy!
