Spinach "Pesto"

Updated: Dec 20, 2018


Spaghetti Squash with Spinach Pesto and Ground Lamb

I absolutely love to make basil pesto, but sometimes I do not have it in the fridge so I have tried my original recipe instead with Spinach and Collard Greens and both work just great! This recipe is so easy and takes less than 5 minutes.


Ingredients

  1. 2 big handfuls of raw spinach, or collard greens

  2. 1/4 cup pine nuts (I found organic ones on Thrive Market)

  3. 1/4 cup raw virgin olive oil

  4. 1/2 avocado (optional, does not need to be used)

  5. Salt and pepper to taste


Method

I place all ingredients in my Blendtec Mini Wildside Jar and voilá!
