Fresh basil is often out of stock at the store. (It’s just that popular!) But no worries. If you’re out of basil, an equal measure of another fresh herb—like cilantro or parsley—can make this pesto just as delicious. No mixed nuts? Any other nuts will do!
2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup fresh basil
¼ cup mixed nuts (plain or salted)
⅓ cup white beans
⅛ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Add all the ingredients with ¼ cup water to a food processor or high-powered blender.
2. Puree until you get a smooth, creamy sauce. That’s it. Really!
