Spread this on everything: Tuscan kale pesto


There are few things more wonderful than finding a dip or spread you can just whip up on a whim and put on just about everything. This is one of those recipes. Instead of using summery basil, this pesto calls for kale, a serious super food that's packed with vitamins and minerals. It's delicious on bread and crackers as a snack, on pasta for dinner or straight out of the jar. Yum! 

 

Ingredients:

Makes about 1 3⁄4 cups

1 bunch black kale

2 large cloves garlic

1⁄2 cup pine nuts, toasted

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp kosher or coarse sea salt

1⁄8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil

 

Directions:

Using a sharp knife, trim kale, separating leaves from stems and center ribs. Discard stems and ribs or save for other uses. Coarsely chop leaves; you should have 12 to 14 cups, loosely packed.

 

In a pot of boiling water over medium heat, blanch kale for 5 minutes, until softened but not limp. Drain and immediately rinse with cold water until kale is at room temperature. Drain.

 

Using food processor fitted with the metal blade, chop garlic. Squeeze handfuls of kale to extract excess liquid and transfer to work bowl. Add pine nuts, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pulse just until chopped and combined. With the motor running, drizzle oil through the feed tube until pesto is puréed and blended but not pasty. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

 

Note: To toast pine nuts, cook them in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden and aromatic. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
