Kale Basil Pesto

Last week, I picked up a CSA share and it a had kale it in. I was planning to make kale chips for the kids, but didn’t get a chance to with the busy weekend we had and celebrating Cooper turning FOUR!!! I decided to not let it go to waste and made a batch of kale basil pesto. This was a new recipe for me and it’s a keeper! It was so good and I can’t wait to have it again for dinner tomorrow night.

4 cups kale, stems removed
6-8 basil leaves
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup olive oil
salt & fresh ground pepper

In a food processor, puree the kale, basil, walnuts, cheese, garlic and olive oil until combined. If the pesto is a little thick, add 2 to 4 tablespoons of water to thin out. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy over fresh pasta, slathered on a piece of crusty bread or use it on grilled cheese. YUM!
