Organic Kale and Marcona Almond Pesto – Let it meld!February 15th, 2013 at Fri, 15th, 2013 at 1:49 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
Just a few simple ingredients to make a new kind of pesto that will make your taste buds dance with joy! Use as a topping on your home made Gluten Free Pizza, Gluten Free Pasta or on top of crusty bread or crackers.
This new pesto is sure to be your favorite and is good for you.
The Lacinato Kale is packed with vitamin C, K, beta carotene and calcium.
Organic Kale & Marcona Almond Pesto
5-6 Organic Lacinato Kale leaves
1/2 cup Marcona Almonds
2-3 Organic garlic cloves
1 green onion
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Spanish Olive Oil
pinch Matiz Espana flor de sal
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Add all of the ingredients, chop and blend in a food blender/mixer or processor.
Pour into a jar and place into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours prior to serving to let it meld!
The acid from the lemon juice will help to break down the kale and the saltiness will compliment the sweeter side of the Lacinato Kale aka Dinosaur Kale.
I am going to add this to my homemade GF Pizza tonight and add dry roasted tomatoes, artichokes and peppers.
I know it will be amazing with fresh GF pasta and I have already had several tasting samples on my favorite crusty GF bread and crackers.
Great way to get your super greens into your weekly menus at home.
This one gets my GF Fav vote !
