Kale Pesto

Updated: Dec 5, 2020



Who loves kale?


I love having veg boxes delivered and being really experimental with what I make.


I've never used kale in pesto but this works really well!


Making a batch of pesto is a great way to use up kale and this pesto is great on pasta, pizza bases as a dip and however you fancy it!



Kale

  • Super nutrient-dense

  • Loaded With Powerful Antioxidants

  • Excellent Source of Vitamin C

  • Can Help Lower Cholesterol, Which May Reduce The Risk of Heart Disease

  • One of the best sources of Vitamin K


Ingredients:

  • 4 handfuls of Kale

  • A good glug of olive oil

  • 1 fresh lemon

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • ¼ pine nuts (i used cashews as did not have any pine nuts) Walnuts would work well too.

  • ⅓ cup hard cheese

  • Sea salt

  • Freshly cracked black pepper.


Freestyling is the name of the game so if you don’t have something just use something similar.


Method:

  1. Wash the kale well and remove any of the hard stalks. Drain away any excess water.

  2. In a mixer (I used a nutribullet), add the kale, zest of the lemon and the rest of the ingredients and blitz until the mixture is a fine textured paste.

  3. Tate and adjust the seasoning if needed.

  4. For a runnier pesto add a little more oil or water.

  5. Enjoy


Who will be trying this one? Love to hear from you. Have a great day xx
