  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Spinach chopped roughly
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sugar

  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 2 Tablespoons roasted peanuts
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 Green Chilli
  • 1 Teaspoon Organic Honey
  • 1 Teaspoon EVOO


1. In a food processor , add sprouted mung beans, cilantro, mint, peanuts, green chilli, honey and peanut butter. Process everything for a minute until the mixture resembles coarse. Then add EVOO and pulse it 3 to 4 times. Set aside
2. In a pan or skillet, melt 1 Teaspoon butter. Add onions, sprinkle sugar over the onions and sauté on medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes stirring intermittently until they are caramelized, crispy and golden. Add chopped spinach and sauté for a minute. Then add soy sauce , red chilli flakes and give it a stir. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside
3. Apply Butter on both sides of the bread slices. Apply a tablespoon of pesto on one side of the slice. . Then place a cheese slice over the pesto. Then place 2 tablespoons of caramelized onions and spinach mixture
4. Place sliced eggs. Season the sliced eggs with salt and pepper
