We’re getting more fresh spinach from our CSA than basil. After last years seemingly unending basil harvest, I’m shocked that I miss basil. This should cure your winter pesto woes. This is a raw pesto. It can be heated with pasta or served with raw veggie noodles.
In your food processor
1/2 lb baby spinach, washed and dried
1/3 Cup evoo
1/4 Cup lemon juice
handful of pine nuts or walnuts, about 1/3 Cup
1-2 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste
Blend until smooth. It is easier to add the spinach in stages because it is so bulky. This keeps well in the fridge for a little over a week because of the high vitamin C content.
