Spinach Pesto


200gr spinach;
1 medium clove;
30gr hazelnuts (or any nuts you have);
30gr parmesan (optional) or breadcrumbs for vegans;
Salt and pepper;


Put all of the ingredients together in a blender and blend until you get a creamy consistency;

Taste the pesto to check if it needs extra flavour (you can add salt and pepper) and then pour it in a bowl if you want to use it straight away and/or in a glass jar to store it (your pesto can be kept in the fridge for several days) with plenty of olive oil until it reaches the top;
