Spinach and Almonds Pesto with Protein Recipe
My husband and kids like plain pasta – just butter and salt, nothing else. I prefer sauce and protein with my pasta. When we have pasta, sometimes it’s hard to make sauce for just one person, especially if you want protein with it. I came up with a pesto recipe that has added almonds for protein. This recipe is very easy and can be stored in your fridge for a few days.
In a food processor or blender mix water, spinach, olive oil, and almonds. I started with the spinach and water first. Then I added some olive oil and a handful of almonds. You’ll want to add enough of the ingredients to make a paste. Sorry, I’m not including amounts here. I just tried this for the first time the other night. I included about a half a bag of spinach leaves. After everything is mixed up you can add salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.
