Spinach-Basil Pesto

Pesto is just one of those things that tastes infinitely better when homemade. Store bought will suffice, but there is nothing like a fresh Basil Pesto. I love adding Spinach to my Pesto to up the veggie factor and I find that swapping out Pine Nuts for Walnuts is a cost effective switch that doesn't impact the flavor either.

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: none Total Time: 10 minutes


2 cups Spinach

2 cups Basil

½ cup Olive Oil*

½ cup Walnuts or Pine Nuts

¼ cup Parmesan (optional)

2 Garlic Cloves

Juice of one Lemon

Salt + Pepper to taste

  1. Combine Spinach, Basil, Garlic, and Walnuts in a blender or food processor and blend until finely chopped.

  2. Slowly drizzle in the Olive Oil and the juice of one Lemon and blend until smooth.

  3. Add in Parmesan, Salt, and Pepper, and combine.

  4. Serve with pasta, a salad, or a wrap!

For this recipe, I tossed the pesto with shredded chicken and made a wrap with it!
