🍃 Kale Pesto Recipe 🍃
- 1 package Bam! Baby Kale
- 2-3 cloves fresh garlic
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup avocado oil
First, blanch the baby kale. Bring a medium pot of water to a rolling boil, season with salt, and add the baby kale. Boil the kale for 1 minute and then drain really well. When cool you may use your hands or paper towel to remove some of the water.
Add the kale, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper to a food processor or blender and mix well. Then, slowly add the avocado oil as the mixer is on.
You can substitute Parmesan cheese for nutritional yeast if you’d like and you can always add nuts to this pesto as well. Otherwise, the recipe is vegan if you use nutritional yeast!
This pesto is great on pasta, eggs, grilled meats, as a dip, and so much more! Enjoy!
