Kale was crowned king of all greens, and in this recipe it definitely holds up to its prestigious title. This super green is packed with vitamin B and C, which promotes iron absorption. I love using this pesto on sandwiches and in pastas.
Makes 1-1/2 cups
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup pine nuts, almonds, or walnuts
1 to 2 cloves garlic
1 cup chopped kale
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender; pulse until combined. Serve over pasta or spread it on sandwiches.
- Have your child help measure out all ingredients and add to the processor or blender and pulse until combined.
- Have them do a taste test to see if the seasoning is just right.
