Spinach Walnut Pesto
Dip, Dressing, sauce
Dressing, Easy Recipe, Gluten Free, pesto, Quick Recipes, sauce
I use 1 1/2 it depends on how oily you like it
1 - 2
depends if you are using for a spread or as a sauce - add more for a sauce and less for a spread
Measure and place spinach, walnuts, parmesan cheese, garlic and salt in a food processor
Process until finely chopped
With processor on, slowly add olive oil through food chute
Last add warm water and process until blended
I have tried making this in my vitamix as well and it works but just not as well as the food processor
Spinach - Use Arugula, Kale or Parsley - all of these have a bit of a stronger taste
Walnuts - Almonds or pine nuts work as well!
Olive Oil - Is heart healthy and I like the hearty flavor it lends but if you happen to be out any neutral oil will work! Avocado would be my next suggestion
Parmesan - Romano works too!
