Spinach Basil Pesto


Spinach Basil Pesto
This is a new staple in my house.  I make fresh batches every other day so it is always in a jar in my fridge.  My kids literally put this on EVERYTHING.  My oldest daughter's favorite way to eat this is spread on a piece of crusty bread with a drizzle of balsamic glaze!  Soooo super good and this is really so simple to make if you have a small food processor or blender.


    • 4 big cloves of garlic
    • 1 1/2 Cups  baby spinach
    • 1 Cup fresh basil
    • 1 Tablespoon pine nuts (omit this if anyone has an allergy to nuts)
    • 1/3 Cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 5 Tablespoons olive oil (more or less to your taste)

    Recipe Directions

  1. 1. Place the garlic cloves whole into your food processor or blender and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. 2. Now add spinach, basil and pine nuts and blend until broken down.

  4. 3. Next add your parmesan plus 1-2 tablespoons of oil.
  5. 4. Blend again until pesto starts to come together.
  6. 5. Add more olive oil until desired consistency.
  7. 6. You can service immediately or cover and refrigerate and store up to a week but it won't last that long!!
