      I've got a fresh pesto pizza coming out of my oven.  Pesto is one of my favorite "go to" foods.   It has so many uses and it's simple to make in a food processor.





      • 1/2 Cup walnuts, toasted.
      • 3 Cups firmly packed kale leaves ,  chopped with coarse stems removed
      • 1 Cup fresh basil
      • 1 Cup fresh parsley, chopped
      • 1 lemon, juiced
      • 2 tsp grated lemon zest
      • 3 garlic cloves, peeled & chopped
      • 1/2 Cup grated parmesan cheese
      • 1/2 - 3/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
      • Salt & pepper to taste



      1. Toast walnut meats in a small skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until lightly browned.  Off heat and allow to cool.
      2. Add kale, basil & parsley to your food processor bowl and pulse 10-12 times, scrapping  down sides as needed.
      3. Add toasted walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, zest and a little salt & pepper.  Pulse 5 times.
      4. Add grated parmesan cheese.
      5. With motor running, slowly add olive oil through chute until desired consistency is reached.
      6. Spoon pesto into a container and store covered in refrigerator up to 5 days.


      Pesto can be used on fresh cooked pasta, spiralized zucchini noodles, steamed vegetables, sandwiches or pizzas.


      Now whatcha got cookin' in your kitchen?
