I mentioned previously how much I love pesto.  I love adding it to my salads as a dressing, rice or quinoa just to name a few.  It can truly jazz up an otherwise plain dish.  

Today, I’ve combined my two favorite vegetables in this artichoke and spinach pesto.  Did you know that artichokes are high in dietary fiber in comparison to other foods?  It’s true.  

One artichoke clocks in at 10.3 grams of dietary fiber .  Outstanding.  Artichokes are also a great source for potassium, magnesium, vitamin C and offers a generous 4 grams of protein.

Spinach, on the other hand is just as amazing and offers many health benefits.  Spinach is high in vitamin K, which plays a role in maintaining bone health.  It also has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits according to The World’s Healthiest Foods website.

Paired with these amazing homemade herbed multi-seed chickpea crackers, you just can’t go wrong.  They are baked, light and full of flavor from the various herbs and seeds.   I hope you give this recipe a try.  You won’t regret it.
