Super Greens Pesto

My favorite easy pesto recipe with a sneaky way to get in some extra greens!

Super Greens Pesto
(makes about 1 generous cup)
  • 1-2 cups fresh basil
  • 2 cups dark leafy greens of choice (such as kale, spinach, arugula)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pine nuts (I like to use 1/4 cup of each)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1 Tbs. nutritional yeast (optional- adds a nutritional boost and a cheesy flavor without any dairy)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor and enjoy!
