Kale Pesto
In: Healthy Foods, Mains, Recipes, Sides0

Huge demand for this pesto recipe!

I put the pesto over some zucchini noodles that were topped with sautéed onions, garlic and portobello mushrooms…super delicious!

So here it is:


Kale & Walnut Pesto Recipe


  • 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (I just threw in 1 lemon with the peel)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (I’m a big garlic fan)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1-2 Tbsp basil or better yet 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 4 cups of fresh Kale leaves (well rinsed)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup awesome olive oil (can use veggie broth or water instead)



  • I used my favorite appliance…my Vitamix. You can use any food processor to do it though.
  • Put everything into the Vitamix in the order above and turn it on the variable 4.
  • You’ll need to move it around using the tamper.
  • Blend it up to whatever consistency you’re after!

Hope you enjoy this pesto!
