This past week I collaborated with my colleague in food blogging adventures, Chava, over at Almost Kosher. I shared my tried and true recipe for Spinach Pesto that I've been making for a few months with my toddler who has only select veggies and fruits, one of which includes spinach (don't ask me why!).
My son's love of spinach led to me trying to incorporate spinach into pretty much every food we eat - pizza, soups, casseroles, and even snack time via this easy pesto recipe that we spread on his favourite whole wheat crackers. I also love this recipe because it's an easy way to add vegetables into something like a grilled cheese sandwich, or even as a garnish on soups.
And while sometimes I find the spinach disappears quickly from our fridge, there are days when I look at it and think, "how am I going to use up all of that spinach before it expires?" If there's something I hate, it's food waste. Even with the best of menu plans, sometimes plans change or you simply end up with more produce than anticipated after going through all of your recipes for that week. Recipes like this Spinach Pesto not only can act as a quick snack, but can also use up our produce staples at the same time.
