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