Kale and Walnut Pesto

You have Kale in your CSA, but your kids want pasta for supper.

Solution! Kale pesto!

.25 cups walnuts

.5 lb kale, coarsely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

.5 c olive oil (or our gmo free canola oil)

.5 c grated Parmesan cheese

Toast your chopped walnuts until they start to brown.  Place in a cold bowl as soon as they start to brown or they will burn.

Bring a pot of water to a boil, add 1 tbsp salt, then add the kale.  Cook until tender and drain (about 10 minutes)

Put garlic, walnuts, and kale in a blender or food processor, pulse until well combined.  With the processor running, then slowly add the oil in a steady stream.

When everything is combined, transfer to a bowl, stir in Parmesan, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot.
