Spinach & Parsley Pesto

Recipe by Girl Gone Gourmet, Published by Yummly, Adapted for Food Hub Members

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pine nuts
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 5 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup asiago cheese, grated
  • Zest from one lemon
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon

Directions
 

  1. In a food processor or blender first chop up the pine nuts and garlic, pulsing several times.
  2. Add in the spinach, parsley, asiago cheese, lemon zest and juice and salt. Blend until smooth stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl, if necessary.
  3. Slowly drizzle in 1/3 cup of olive oil while blending. You may want to add more depending on how thick you want the sauce. I added in one extra tablespoon, but do what feels right.
  4. Makes approximately 1 cup of pesto.
