Almond Spinach Pesto

Vegan Pesto+Zucchini Noodles

I adore pesto. Pesto feels decadent however with the right ingredients it’s an absolutely healthy and nutritious sauce or spread. Today I’m sharing how to make a vegan pesto with almonds and spinach. Then we’ll top this sauce on to fresh zucchini noodles! This is a fantastic lunch or dinner idea, especially with warm weather right around the corner. Watch today’s NEW cooking video to see how I prepare this dish and view / or print the recipe below! Thanks for stopping by the HGG Blog today! I hope you have a fantastic, delicious day! xx Megan
