Spinach Sage Almond Pesto

The easiest and delicious pesto, that goes with everything with a fresh, spring flavor. Unlike some pestos this pesto is not oily. We slathered this on savory waffles (see pic below), with scrambled eggs, grilled cheese, veggie burgers, salad, and basically by the spoonful.

The food processor makes this super fast and easy. Since this was so delicious, I am brainstorming other pesto combinations to try.

Spinach Sage Almond pesto:


1 cup fresh sage leaves

5-7 fresh basil leaves

3 cups of fresh spinach

1 clove of garlic

Large pinch of salt and pepper

1/4 cup of almonds

1/2 cup of EVOO

Juice of 1/2 a large lemon

To prepare:

Preheat oven to 350

Place almonds on a baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes


Place all the ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth

Store in a mason jar and refrigerator until use

Or freeze in an ice cube tray to quickly add to pastas and rice for future use.
