  1. Place chopped basil and baby spinach along with garlic, almonds, lemon juice and olive oil in food processor and pulse until somewhat smooth until it reaches a pesto-like consistency (I did this in a Vitamix blender on low for about a minute). If you don\'t have a food processor you can do this using a pestle and mortar.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the grated goats cheese (I used a parmesan grater).
  3. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  4. Add water or extra olive oil to thin if needed depending on how thick or thin you want it.


Can be used as a thick pesto or a dressing. For a more dressing-like consistency, simply add more water or olive oil.
