We all know kale is healthy – the dark leafy green is rich in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants – and we should probably eat more of it. This kale pesto recipe is as easy as it is healthy. We tried it tossed with pasta and as a sauce on our favorite homemade pizza, and we imagine it would be delicious on just about anything.
Prep Time: 10 minutes Yield: 1 1/2 cups
4 cups kale (chopped)
6 cloves garlic (crushed)
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup parmesan
Add the kale, garlic and cashews to a blender or food processor.
Blend for 30 seconds.
Add the salt, pepper, olive oil and water.
Blend until all ingredients have been incorporated (30-60 seconds).
Add the parmesan cheese and pulse for 5-10 seconds.
Serve with pizza, pasta or your favorite dish.
