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!


  • 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


  • 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.


  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
