kale pesto + sun dried tomatoes

This is by far the easiest and healthiest pesto I've ever made. I love pesto; on toast, with crackers, tossed with pasta, its just so easy and bursting with flavor. Adding kale to the equation just made it way healthier, and go a lot further!

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes (in oil)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 large kale leaves, de-stemed 
  • black pepper (optional)

Just throw everything in a food processor and blend away! There is no need for nuts or cheese in this pesto, the sun dried tomatoes add tons of flavor and saltiness. You can't even really taste the kale! Its too easy, and its amazing on pasta! I tossed some brown rice penne pasta with the kale pesto and topped it off with some sauteed zucchini last night for dinner, yum.
