First up we have Dianne’s Kale Pesto recipe, she loves it for its simplicity and flavor.
Kale is packed with nutrients and calcium, but its roughness turns some people off. This pesto is a great way to get kale into your diet in a delicious way. Use it as a sandwich spread, on top of pasta, on veggies or crackers. It takes just a few minutes.
1/2 cup pine nuts ( or walnuts), toasted
2 cups firmly packed kale, de stemmed
2 medium garlic cloves
1/2 tsp. Sea salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or vegan Parmesan)
6 tblsp. Extra virgin olive oil
* Toast nuts in pan over medium heat. (This step really makes a difference.)
* Place kale, garlic, salt, and nuts in processor and chop about 30 seconds, until everything is finely chopped.
* Add cheese and olive oil and process 10-30 seconds more.If you want dairy-free, and don’t want to use vegan cheese, use 4 tblsp. only of oil. Enjoy!
Stay safe and healthy everyone
