• 4 packed cups spinach leaves
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon water or more as needed


  • If you’re using a fresh bunch of spinach, place it in a large bowl of water to clean off any dirt. Drain it and dry it in a salad spinner. This step isn’t necessary if you are using bagged spinach that has been pre-washed.
  • Add the spinach, nutritional yeast, chopped walnuts, dried basil, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to chop it up.
  • Add a tablespoon of water and process on low until it is blended. If it is too thick, add more water a teaspoon at a time to get it to your desired consistency.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
