Walnut + Kale Pesto
A healthy pesto using walnuts and kale, instead of the usual pinenuts. This pesto is an excellent addition to pasta, raw veggie noodles, potato salad or just dolloped on steamed veggies or baked potatoes.
NOTE: if using raw you may want to reduce the amount of garlic. If using in a cooked dish, lightly heat the pesto through before adding to other ingredients.
Ingredients (makes about 1 cup)
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup (tightly packed) fresh basil
1/4 cup (tightly packed) fresh parsley
1/4 cup (tightly packed) fresh sage
1/2 cup baby kale
2 or 3 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 Tbsp filtered water
salt + black pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
