Recipe
Spinach & Cilantro Pesto
Category: Raw Foods
Description: One leafy, green vegetable that I cannot seem to get enough of is Spinach. Spinach is so versatile, from spinach salads, to spinach smoothies, to spinach soup. You name the recipe and spinach can be added to it. And talk about nutritious…remember Popeye?? The health benefits of spinach are numerous. It sits at the top of many super food lists. Spinach is loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and Iron. It is also rich in Vitamin C, fiber and caretenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach becomes a nutritional powerhouse.
The combination of flavours in the following recipe are simply divine. I’ve cheated a bit and toasted the cashews, but it’s worth it for the enhanced flavour.
