Kale-Hemp Pesto RecipeJune 8th, 2016
More rich and hearty than basil pesto, this kale-hemp version possesses a mild flavor that works beautifully on everything from pasta to roasted veggies. And, between omega-3s in the hemp seeds and antioxidants in the kale, it’s extra good for you. To make it vegan, swap out the parmesan for nutritional yeast.
Yield: 1 cup
Active Time: 5 minutes
Place kale, hemp seeds, garlic, salt, parmesan, and lemon juice in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Process until combined, then, with the machine running, drizzle in olive oil until mixture looks totally smooth. Cover and store in fridge for up to 5 days.
