Super Spinach Pesto

Super Spinach Pesto created by danlynclark

This has been a great recipe that uses spinach instead of the traditional basil as its base, making it cheaper to make. Great in homemade tomato soup.

    Me and 2 daughters, age 6 and 9 LOVE this!!! Yummy on sandwiches or on crackers. Using on a pesto pizza right now!

    I thought this was very tasty and easy to make. I like a less oily pesto, so I think I will cut back on the oil next time I make it.

    This was good stuff. I made it to use as part of another recipe and froze the rest. I ended up using brazil nuts as I didn't have any walnuts or sunflower seeds. I also added more garlic because I have a wonderful mild garlic that my Dad gave me from his garden.

    Yum! I am planning to make a pizza using this pesto, some shredded zucchini, tomatoes and mozzarella. I will probably cut back on the oil next time, or just add more spinach. Way more economical than basil pesto and just as good!

    I never thought about using spinach in pesto! I had a some basil as well & used it as well as the spinach. I used pine nuts since that is what I had & I 86'd the dried oregano. I figure using the spinach...it's an extra health boost! Will continue to do that from now on even if I have tons of basil. This is great. Thanks!
