Ingredients

  • 1.5 Cup tightly packed spinach
  • 2 Tblsp dry basil (optional)
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Cup dry roasted walnut
  • 1.5 Tblsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tsp agave syrup (you can use honey or sugar as well)

Instructions

  • Add spinach, dry basil, garlic cloves, salt, walnuts, lemon juice and agave syrup in the grinding jar and blend until everything mixed.
  • Scrap down from the sides and add olive oil. Grind till you get a smooth paste-like consistency.
  • If pesto looks thicker just add 2-3 tbsp olive oil more and blend again.
    Spinach pesto is ready to serve and use.

Notes

  1. You can store in the fridge for 4-5 days. Cover the surface with olive oil, though it becomes darker with each passing day.
  2. To make nut-free eliminate nuts in the pesto and still will taste great.
  3. To make vegan do not use parmesan cheese.
