Spinach-Basil Pesto

5 from 1 reviews

This pesto is made with ingredients you probably have on hand and is given an healthy boost with added spinach!




  1. Put all the ingredients except the olive oil, salt, and pepper in a food process. Pulse until the ingredients are broken down and mostly incorporated. I like the ingredients in my pesto to be distinguishable, so I don’t over process. You can process to the consistency you like.
  2. With the machine running, drizzle in the olive oil until the pesto is as oily as you like it, stopping to scrape down the sides if necessary. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking. I usually add about 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few good turns of pepper


This is the food processor I am currently using and recommending: Breville “The Sous Chef” Peel and Dice
