Vegan kale pesto

IMG_9789

I use pesto a lot in different recipes and although I do sometimes buy ready-made (Zest and Suma both do some great vegan ones), I often make my own.  Pesto is traditionally made with rocket but for this one I used kale instead.  Once made it will keep in the fridge for a few days.

  • 3 large handfuls of organic kale
  • 1 small cup of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic – peeled and chopped
  • Large handful of pine nuts
  • Salt and pepper to season
  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl
  2. Blend using a hand-held blender
  3. Delicious with pasta, gnocchi, in soups or drizzled on salads
