Here’s a fun and “jazzed up” pesto recipe made with fresh baby spinach, hemp seeds, arugula, coriander, Parmesan and more! The first time I made this, it was to go with some homemade raviolis stuffed with light ricotta and feta cheese. Delicious! To make the pasta sauce, I stretched a few tablespoons of this pesto with coconut milk and a tab more garlic (I’m obsessed with garlic so taste before adding more) and just like that, I had made an flavorful and creamy sauce. Later that week, I used it for grilling some juicy steaks and even made a dip for the meat! Both experiences were very welcomed by everybody who had the chance to taste it.
