Spinach-Walnut Pesto with Lemon

Spinach-Walnut Pesto with Lemon

servings
1 1/2
cups

Ingredients










Cooking Instructions

1

Mince garlic in food chopper or processor. Add spinach, walnuts, olive oil (I start out with 1/3 a cup and then add more as needed), lemon juice and lemon zest. Pulse your chopper with very short bursts of energy until you have a nice chunky sauce. I sometimes stir the ingredients or shake my chopper between bursts to help all the ingredients chop evenly. Add hot water and/or more olive oil to get a consistency you like. Be careful; you do not want it to be runny or overblended. It should be thick and chunky.


2

Empty sauce into bowl and gently fold in freshly grated parmesan. Add salt and pepper and more lemon zest to taste.
