I loved the idea of using kale in my pesto when I was researching and thinking of recipes for the week. Kale can be tricky because it is so bitter so I was intrigued to test the recipe out, but it ended up tasting great! I used it in a couple of recipes already, and even use it to dip raw veggies in for a healthy snack. Pesto really is so easy to make, the hardest part is the cleanup. This time I used my immersion blender instead of a food processor and the cleanup was much easier!
- 5 cups kale
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
To make the pesto: pulse all in the ingredients in your food processor or blend with an immersion blender until it becomes pesto.
