Hearty Pesto Bagels

Try this pesto sauce and you’ll never need another kind!  This is so hearty, fresh, and filling, and good for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner!


– 4 wheat bagels, halved  – 2 C of fresh basil – 1 1/4 C of walnuts, toasted – 3 cloves garlic – 2 Tbsp of lemon juice – 1/4 tsp of sea salt – 1/2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper – 40 small Spinach leaves – 1 avocado, sliced thinly – 16 small Grape tomatoes, sliced in half – 1 red onion, sliced thinly, in quarters

Toast bagel halves. Divide and set aside the spinach leaves, avocado slices, grape tomatoes slices, and red onion slices into 8 sections- each part goes for each bagel half.

To make the basil pesto, combine the basil, toasted walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper in a food processor. While processing, slowly drizzle in 1 tsp olive oil.

On each bagel half, spread basil pesto and layer with spinach leaves, avocado slices, sliced tomatoes, and sliced red onion. Enjoy!
