DIRECTIONS

  • Blanch the kale in boiling salted water for about 3 minutes and chill down in a cold water bath, drain and squeeze excess water.
  • Place into small work bowl of food processor and pulse to start breaking up the kale, add rough chopped garlic, process, add pine nuts, pulse several times.
  • Slowly add the olive oils and lemon juice, process until everything is broken down. It will never be real smooth.
  • Finally add the cheese and pulse a few times. Season with salt and pepper.
  • If serving with pasta grate a little extra cheese over and add EVOO to the hot pasta, toss with pesto, serve with additional grated cheese.
  • These are the basics of my recipe and the way that I prefer it, but you can add more garlic, lemon, or oil if you like.
