Kale and Almond Pesto

Kale and Almond Pesto
3 c. kale- roughly chopped
3-4 basil leaves
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1/2 c. roasted unsalted almonds
1 garlic clove
1/4 grated parmesan- plus extra to shave over
1 c. olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1. In a food processor add in the basil leaves, parsley, almonds and garlic. Set a salted pot of water over medium high heat and once boiling, add in the kale. You made need to do this in batches. Blanch the kale for 1-2 minutes, then remove, drain and add to the processor (it’s ok if a little water from the kale gets in).

2. Add the grated cheese and then blend together. While blending drizzle the olive oil in through the top until it has a creamy consistency- you may not need all the oil, or you may need more. Taste for salt and pepper and then serve over pasta with some grated parmesan on top.
