Description

Pesto with a twist—made with kale to add some zing and nutrients! A great snack with crackers or can be used on pasta. Good hot or cold.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Kale (between 5 And 10 Leaves Per Bunch)
  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • 3 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • ¼ cups Pine Nuts
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Put a steamer basket into a large pot and add an inch or so of water. Bring to a boil. Remove the tough stem parts from all of the kale leaves. Put kale leaves into the steamer basket and put the lid on. Steam kale leaves for 3-5 minutes, until limp.

Add all ingredients into a blender, putting the olive oil and lemon juice first, the pine nuts, garlic and Parmesan next and the kale last. You will need to press the kale down with a spatula so that the blender blades can chop everything up. Blend on the puree (or similar) cycle. You may need to unplug the blender and push the ingredients down then continue blending so that it becomes a puree. Add more olive oil if necessary.

Makes about 3/4 of a pint jar. Enjoy on pasta or with crackers.
