Kale Almond Pesto Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 10-15 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 1 batch

Mid July and pestomania is in the air. I’ve been working on a variety of pestos night and day for the last week. Today’s version is Kale Almond Pesto.

  • 1 bunch kale, steamed to bright green -if you are looking for an exact measurement, I used 6 ounces
  • ⅓ cup toasted almonds
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic
  • ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  1. Place kale in food processor and pulse until chopped
  2. Add almonds and garlic, pulse again to incorporate
  3. Pulse in salt, lemon juice, oil and pepper flakes
  4. Continue pulsing until pesto reaches desired consistency (I like mine fairly smooth)
  5. Serve over Sesame Crackers
