Linguini with Pepita-Kale Pesto
Tonight I made a pepita-kale pesto over linguini and garlic bread with leftover hot dog buns. The pesto was a little oily for my taste but overall it had a nice taste to it. Highly nutritious with the head of kale I made it with. Excellent way to get rid of some kale that may be going limp in the fridge. If you have never tried kale, run out now and get some! Do not be afraid of it. It is amazing for you and taste great.
1 bunch kale
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds-lightly toasted in hot frying pan for a few minutes)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil (I would try to use even less next time)
2 tbsp nutritional yeast.
Boil kale in water for about 5 minutes, drain and add all ingredients except oil to food processor. Mince together and stream the oil in until it all comes together. Reheat on stove and serve over pasta.
