EASY Kale and Spinach Pesto Sauce is loaded with fresh healthy greens ( kale, spinach, and basil) and blended with some garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper, and extra-virgin olive oil and the flavor is fantastic! Use it as a condiment or with your favorite pasta or noodles.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (packed) basil
  • 1 cup (packed) baby kale
  • 1 cup (packed) baby spinach
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, and extra if needed
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • fresh cracked pepper and salt to taste
Instructions

  2. Pulse or blend until smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally with a spatula.
  3. Add in the grated cheese and cayenne pepper. Blend on low speed for a few seconds. Taste and add fresh black pepper and salt to taste.
  4. If the pesto is too thick, add more extra olive oil (drizzle slowly while it's on low speed) until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency.

  6. Store in the fridge up to 1 month.
