Nut Free, Dairy Free Spinach & Basil Pesto

A nut free, dairy free simple recipe to please all dietary restrictions and sneak in some extra veggies for those pickier eaters!

I slightly tweaked one of my other pesto recipes to make it even simpler and delicious! You can find my avocado pesto version here. Or grab my pumped up store bought pesto recipe here.

This is a dump and blend type of recipe with simple simple ingredients. Sometimes pesto can be overwhelming and I reach for the store-bought but not this recipe.

You can't get simpler!

Nut Free, Dairy Free Spinach & Basil Pesto

4 Servings | Prep time: 5 min

Notes: Delicious homemade pesto without nuts or cheese! I love using a bunch of spinach too to sneak in some extra green and because it doubles the amount of pesto without using 3 plants worth of basil.


  • 1 cup basil

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1 shallot

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Add all of the pesto ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until well combined.

  2. Serve tossed with your favorite pasta, protein or as a dip for veggies!

Note: Add additional red wine vinegar and olive oil to thin it out and use as a salad dressing (would make about 8 servings as a dressing).
