Turn kale into a delicious, healthy spreadable topping! Making pesto is a great way to get the most out of your greens, especially kale. What makes this pesto "cheesy" is the nutritional yeast flakes. Nutritional yeast flakes can be found in most grocery stores. It has a cheesy flavor, without the dairy, and adds some protein to the mix too! Add in some pecans, lemon juice, basil, extra virgin olive oil and "PESTO!"-- you have a healthy kale pesto!
That joke was kinda "cheesy" :)
"Cheesy" Kale Pesto
1. In a food processor, blend just the kale into tiny pieces.
2. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients. Blend together until it makes a beautifully green spreadable pesto!
Spread this pesto on pizza crust, toast, fish, chicken, or mix in with pasta or quinoa.
