  • Blender


  • 2 Cups Fresh Basils Leaves and Stems! Zero Waste :)
  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach
  • 1 Lemon Juice
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ Tsp Kosher Salt
  • ¼ Cup Pine Nuts + More for Topping


  • 1. Blend together basil, spinach, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt.
  • 2. Taste (this is where you can add more salt or olive oil to your preference).
  • 3. Add pine nuts and pulse. We want bits and pieces of pine nuts in the pesto. Blending too long will result in very creamy pesto.
  • 4. Add to pasta & stir (here I used Trader Joe’s GF Fettucinne which isn’t vegan, use your favorite GF/Vegan pasta).
  • Enjoy!


Use 16oz of dried pasta or two packets (18oz) of fresh pasta. I used the Fresh Gluten-Free Fettuccine from Trader Joe's.
