Spinach & Cilantro Pesto 

Print Friendly 

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.





Ingredients:
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, chopped
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 ½ cups toasted (raw) cashews
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 ½ cups fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tsp. sea salt
4 tbsp olive oil


Directions:
Combine the garlic, green onion, lemon juice and cashews in a food processor. Coarsely blend and then add a third of the spinach and cilantro, plus the salt. Blend. Add the remaining spinach and cilantro, alternating with the olive oil, pushing down the sides with a spatula between blending, until all is well blended.

Your Raw Corn Chips work beautifully with this Pesto. See recipe in OK In Health's Raw recipe section.

Wellness Tip
Icing for injuries
Icing many types of injuries aids the healing process. But, using ice improperly can actually do more harm than good. Use these precautions when treating injuries: Do not leave the ice pack on an injury after the skin becomes numb. Never fall asleep with ice on your skin. Don't use ice on open blisters or wounds. If an injury does not respond to self-treatment within 24 hours, see a doctor
