Mid July and pestomania is in the air. I’ve been working on a variety of pestos night and day for the last week. Today’s version is Kale Almond Pesto.


  1. 1Place kale in food processor and pulse until chopped
  2. 2Add almonds and garlic, pulse again to incorporate
  3. 3Pulse in salt, lemon juice, oil and pepper flakes
  4. 4Continue pulsing until pesto reaches desired consistency (I like mine fairly smooth)
  5. 5Serve over Sesame Crackers
