Recipe is created for
TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Soak pine nut in water for 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
Combine pinenuts and garlic in the mixing bowl and chop for 5sec/Speed7. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with the spatula.
Add spinach, basil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and salt into the mixing bowl and chop for 10sec/Speed6 until the pesto is the texture you like. I prefer mine to still be a little bit chunky. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with the spatula.
Slowly drizzle olive oil in a steady stream through the hole in the lid at Speed 4 until combined.
Cover and stored chilled in the freezer for at least one hour to allow the flavours to develop. You can pour a thin layer of olive oil on top to keep the pesto a bright green colour.
