  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese*
  • 1/4 cup brazil nuts
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin

Recipe Notes

Since pesto contains just a few ingredients, the quality of those ingredients really matters if you want the best flavor! If you can, choose an organic olive oil and real parmesan. Trust me — your taste buds will thank you. :)
