Kale Pesto


Kale Pesto 1

Kale is an awesome super food but there’s really only so many kale chips you can eat before it gets boring. I have an idea for a great salad based on an awesome kale, pine nut and dove breast salad that Andrew Zimmerman made at the Austin Food and Wine Festival a few weeks ago. I’m not ready for dove breasts but totally love the concept.

So for now I present a fun zingy kale and broccoli pesto! Ok so it won’t replace regular pesto but for those of us who are allergic to fresh basil this does lovely!


1 bunch of kale, stems removed

1 crown of broccoli

1 – 3 cloves of garlic

1/4 – 1/3 cup of olive oil

1/2 lemon

Salt and Pepper


1. Put all ingredients into a blender (Ninja!) Kale prechopand pulse until well mixed.kale ninja
