A nut free, dairy free simple recipe to please all dietary restrictions and sneak in some extra veggies for those pickier eaters!
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
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Add all of the pesto ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until well combined.
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).
