Handmade Spinach Pesto

Handmade Spinach Pesto

Directions

Crush garlic and a pinch of kosher salt in a mortar with the pestle until garlic is mashed and paste-like. Add basil and spinach in batches, crushing down the leaves until they form a fairly fine paste. Add in pine nuts and grind down to combine. Add the cheese in batches and pound into the mixture until incorporated. Drizzle in olive oil a bit at a time, pounding to combine. When all the olive oil has been added and emulsified into the mixture, transfer pesto to a bowl to serve and drizzle the surface with olive oil.
