Kale Pesto

OK, so I am a huge fan of kale. I particularly like it in my morning smoothie. My daughter doesn't even notice that there is kale in her smoothie. Anyway, I went to my cousin David's house today so see his garden. The only thing I went for was kale and my daughter wanted to see the chickens he has. We left with three grocery bags and two five gallon buckets full of produce. One bucket of kale, the rest was zucchini, cucumbers, peas, green beans, a head of cabbage and a few tomatoes. When we got home I went on a search for kale recipes and found kale pesto. Now, I love basil pesto and was pretty sure I would like kale pesto. I was right. It is freaking fabulous. Here is the recipe.

1 cup packed kale
1/4 cup walnuts
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup vegan Parmesan
juice of half a lemon
1/2  - 2/3 cup olive oil

Process the first five ingredients then slowly add the olive oil. Once complete, add to your favorite pasta and enjoy.
