  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • ¼ cup almonds raw, whole
  • 2 tbsp pecorino cheese
  • ½ cup olive oil

  • pepper to taste
  • salt to taste


  • add your spinach, basil, almonds, olive oil, cheese and lemon juice into the food processor
  • pulse consistently until fully combined
  • taste and add salt and pepper to your taste. i found the recipe didn't need too much due to the cheese adding a salty aspect.
  • pulse again until fully combined
  • add to your favorite pasta or as a spread on a sandwich/avocado toast.
  • pour into a mason jar or sealed container for storage.
  • as always, enjoy!
