Spinach Almond Pesto

Spinach Almond Pesto

I love love love fresh pestos- they taste fresher and are much healthier than store bought versions. You all probably know about my love for pesto given my previous Kale & Cashew pesto recipe. This recipe is similar, but has a slightly richer flavor given the almonds. It is also a beautiful, bright color which is fun!

Ingredients:

  • 2 C spinach (uncooked)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/3 C sliced almonds
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4-5 basil leaves (to brighten up the flavor- can be omitted)
  • 2 T water (room temp)

Recipe:
1. Combine everything in a magic bullet or food processor thoroughly and enjoy! Serve with bread, pasta, or veggies!
