Herbed Kale Pesto

Kale_at_Manna_2014.JPGI don't know about you guys, but I have a TON of kale coming out of my garden right now! Aside from braising, massaging and smoothie-ing kale, I love to incorporate it into homemade sauces like pesto! This recipe is a template, so please tweak flavors to your liking!

Ingredients:

1 bunch of cilantro or parsley

2 cups de-stemmed kale (any variety)

½ cup walnuts or pepitas

4-6 cloves garlic

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Place first four ingredients in food processor and pulse. Slowly drizzle in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. This should form a think pesto paste that will keep in the fridge for several weeks. Thin it out with a little more oil and/or vinegar to dress a salad or keep it thick and spread over anything from salmon to corn on the cob to crusty bread!
