Cashew Spinach Pesto


Cashew Spinach Pesto

Ingredients

1 cup roasted, salted cashews
3 large handfuls of spinach
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
Juice from 1 lemon
salt to taste
generous sprinkle of red chili flakes (optional)

Instructions

In a food processor, add cashews, garlic, lemon juice. Blend until cashews turn into small chunks. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides.
While the cashews are blending, add spinach through the feeding tube of the food processor.
Stop to scrape down sides and add water, salt and red chili flakes.
Continue to blend until desired consistency. I tend to like mine with some texture. 

This pesto pairs well with toast, crackers and veggies.
