Pesto with kale and basil

Rate this post

I needed a fast meal today, which obviously means raw and therefore means pesto! As I was preparing a vegan version of the pesto, I used hemp seeds instead of parmesan cheese and even if it doesnt taste precisely the same, it at least brought a fairly comparable texture to the dish.

Preparation time: ten minutes

  • 4 cups (1000ml) of organic kale
  • 2 cup (500ml) of organic basil
  • 3 organic garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of hemp seeds
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Remove the kale’s stem and keep the leaves only. A tip: I use the stem to dip it in hummus while I prepare supper!
  2. In a food processor, put the kale, the basil and the garlic cloves and pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Continue mixing and gradually add the olive oil, the hemp seeds, the salt and the pepper. It’s ready when you have a smooth texture.
  4. There is not much else to do other than to cook your pastas and that’s it, quick and easy!

Pesto is one of my favorite foods, and I like cooking it at home. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.

This is an excellent pesto recipe. Made this using the pistachio version and it was amazing.

This pesto is very amazing! It’s so adaptable that I’m sure we’ll make it once a week!

I normally use cashews in my dishes, but after seeing that you used hemp seeds, I decided to give them a try.

This dish is fantastic! It’s fantastic. For a more subtle flavor, I added some thyme and additional parmesan.

I like pesto and tomatoes, so I attempted this recipe. It’s incredible. My only additions were half the basil and some salt.

It’s simple to prepare, fresh, and delicious.

I can’t believe I simply prepared this on my own and had no idea! That was so delicious that I ate more than half on my own!

This pesto was delicious. The eggplant that came with it was also delicious.

I just made your pesto and it’s delicious! That was incredibly simple and fast to prepare, plus the flavor of hemp makes me feel like I’m eating something very healthy! Thank you for motivating me to utilize it more often.
