Traditional pesto is typically loaded with fat. This is a great alternative that removes most of the fat without sacrificing any of the flavor.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 15 oz can white beans, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 cup packed baby spinach
  • 1 cup packed basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons toasted walnuts
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION

Place all ingredients into a food processor. While processing on high, slowly add bean liquid until you reach your desired consistency. Toss with your favorite whole wheat pasta, veggies or use as a spread.

Makes 8 servings.
