Spinach, Avocado and Almond Pesto

Strictly speaking, this isn’t really a pesto (pesto traditionally was made with pine nuts) but now there are many pesto recipes to be found, but this one is particularly delicious for stuffing into chicken breasts.

Serves: 6 portions
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: No cook


o   1 large handful baby spinach

o   1 ripe avocado

o   6 basil stalks, leaves removed

o   Small bunch flat leaf parsley

o   1tbsp olive oil (add a little more if necessary to achieve correct consistency)

o   1oz/30g parmesan cheese, grated

o   Juice of 1 lemon

o   2 garlic cloves, minced

o   4 fresh almonds

o   Seasoning to taste


Put all the ingredients except the olive oil into the blender. Blitz until combined.

Gently add the oil through the spout of the blender until you achieve a glossy, thick paste.

Stuff chicken breasts, use as a dip, or spread on rounds of toasted baguette. Not forgetting stirring through pasta!
