Spinach and Hazelnut Pesto

spinach and hazelnut pesto

This creamy spinach and hazelnut pesto offers a more substantial twist on the classic basil pasta sauce. I love serving it with sweet potato tagliatelle, which I make by using a vegetable peeler on raw, peeled sweet potatoes and then slicing lengthways into thin strips before blanching very briefly in boiling water. It's a great, quick dinner option which packs in the nutrients.

Three great health benefits: good for bone health, promotes healthy skin, good source of antioxidants

Serves 2

50g hazelnuts
25g pine nuts
1 avocado
Large handful (approx 50g) spinach
3 sprigs basil
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp water
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt & pepper

1) In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts and pine nuts until finely chopped
2) Add the other ingredients and whizz together until smooth
