the girl’s spinach and pea pesto


This is a recipe I made up a little while ago. It is a delicious alternative to a tomato-based pasta sauce but you can also use it as a dip.


  • 60g of pine nuts
  • 2 cups of (defrosted) frozen peas
  • ½ cup of lemon
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Dill
  • Chilli powder
  • Spinach fettuccine


  1. Mix pine nuts, peas and lemon juice in a food processor until combined into a smooth paste.
  2. Season with oregano, dill, chilli powder, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Boil water in a pot and add spinach fettuccine.
  4. While that is boiling, place spinach in a colander and pour hot water over it.
  5. Once the pasta is ready, stir the spinach and pesto mixture through it.
