{ Kale Pesto }

I don’t know about you, but over here, once the kale begins producing in the garden– it doesn’t stop all season! We really do love the tasty super veg, but we are always looking for new and creative ways to use it in our meals. This simple pesto is a regular in our kitchen. It is delicious!

Ways to use your pesto:

We particularly love ours on pasta, using this pesto pasta sauce method. You can also freeze the sauce in batches and use in all kinds of ways throughout the year, long after garden season has ended. Let us know what creative dishes you make with yours!
