Spinach Walnut Pesto Recipe

I am so excited to be sharing one of my favourite recipes with you all.

This simple spinach walnut pesto recipe is super easy and delicious with its deep, rich and nutty flavours. It also has good amounts of heart healthy fibre and fats, plus protein, vitamins and minerals and antioxidants inside to support overall health.

Not to mention, how incredibly versatile it is. Spread the pesto on top of toast as part of a sandwich, use it as a pasta or pizza sauce base, dress it over a salad or use it as a sauce on top of fish, meats, legumes or vegetables. So many options. You take your pick!
