Vegan Kale Pesto
What do with a bunch of kale you wonder? Vegan kale pesto of course! Each week I get a surprise veggie bag from Los Perros Urban Farming. It’s seasonal, it’s local and it’s tasty! Last week I received kale in my veggie bag. Now, I’m not a huge fan of kale, to be honest. I make kale crisps occasionally, which actually goes great alongside crisply grilled chicken. However, I often struggle what to make out of kale.
Therefore I needed to try something else to do with kale. Now, what I am a fan of, is pesto. In all its forms. Vegan kale pesto was no exception from this rule. To take away the bitterness from the kale, I marinated the kale in salt and lemon juice. It took the bitterness away but added a little peppery flavour. I really hope you like it. Toss it over pasta or have it with nachos crisps as I did.
