As a mom of three little guys, it’s always a plus when I have a quick and easy meal in my back pocket. But including a powerful health punch in everything I feed them at home is super important because I like to let go of the stress when we are out. Pesto is always a winner in our house. It’s easy to make (thank god for my Vitamix!) and my kids love it. And can we please talk about the loads of healthy goodness packed into that stuff?! I mean, if it were real estate we’d call it New York City with how much green per cubic inch we can get! This vegan spinach pesto in particular screams green, just look at these pics!
Other than roasting the garlic, this vegan spinach pesto literally takes me 5 minutes to make. Boil some pasta and a quick, easy and healthy dinner is ready to go! I like to keep roasted garlic in my fridge, so for me it’s a fast grab and blend dinner. My absolute favorite kind! It does not get better than that for this mom.
Now I know you are going to want to try this. So give it a whirl…in your blender, ha!…and let me know what you think! I love hearing your comments on all I create! You can leave a comment here, find me on Facebook or tag me on Instagram at veggiesdontbite #veggiesdontbite so I don’t miss it!
