The arugula cashew pesto freezes beautifully so I like to make a big batch in advance and keep it in a large ice cube tray. This recipe is adapted from Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky's Run Fast Eat Slow and I eat it on top of everything!

For the Arugula Cashew Pesto


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 cups arugula or basil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white miso
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked according to package directions
  • 1/2 bunch kale
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Step 1

    Make your arugula cashew pesto by combining the cashews, arugula/basil, olive oil, white miso and lemon juice in a food processor. Process until smooth, adding a little olive oil if needed.

  • Step 2

    Heat the coconut oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Sauté the kale and garlic until tender. Transfer to a plate.

  • Step 3

    Fry your eggs in the same skillet, adding a little more oil, or bacon fat for extra crispiness, if needed. Cook until the whites are set, about 4-5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Assemble the eggs and quinoa with the kale, then top with some of the pesto.
