This pesto is so delicious and healthy, it won't matter what diet lifestyle you're on! I am a non-vegan, but interested in vegan and RAW foods. Got this off of vegcookin.com. Great way to get superfoods into your diet, and/or transition to a RAW foods diet. It doesn't matter, yummy is yummy!

- Chop the kale in a food processor, working in two batches and removing as you go along.
- Combine both batches of kale along with the above mentioned ingredients. Drizzle the olive oil in and process until you reach a paste-like consistency, using more olive oil if needed.
- Once you have reached the proper peso consistency, it’s ready to use.
