Spinach pesto with Extra Matured Cheddar

Spinach pesto with Extra Matured Cheddar

A perfect addition to sandwiches and tapas alike – our recipe for Spinach pesto with cheddar revolves around a cheese- and almond-reinforced consistency that clings to its surroundings. Specialising in adding depth and colour, flavours are mellow, bordering on mild with a citrus twist.

10 mins 4 servings
Herby (Fresh) Cheesy


  • 50 g almonds
  • 250 g fresh spinach
  • 50 g Castello® Extra Mature Cheddar
  • 1 garlic clove
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • salt
  • pepper


1. Rinse the fresh spinach leaves and add to blender with almonds, garlic and Extra Matured Cheddar.

2. Pulse lightly to blend, and gradually add the olive oil to get a slightly chunky texture without puréeing the pesto.

3. Season with lemon juice and salt and pepper.
