Green Walnut Pesto Dip

 

I have so much fresh kale in my garden that I just have to consume it every day. 🙂

This plant is maybe the easiest one to grow. We leave it during the coldest winter and the hottest summer, and it still survives and grows! Well, I don’t mind.  It’s a great addition to my green smoothies. I love it also in dips, sauces and pestos. Here I offer you the recipe of one pesto with kale that I recently made. It’s a quick dip to make when you have a bunch of greens and nuts and you enjoy raw vegetables as a snack.

Green Walnut Pesto Dip

This quick dip is one of the smartest and easiest ways to eat kale. I've also added green garlic leaves, green onion and parsley. And it's still so yum! It's loaded with so much nutrients that you might want to give it a try, especially if you love to dip crunchy vegetables.

Ingredients
  

  • 3-4 kale leaves (stem removed)
  • 1 cup freshly cut parsley
  • 2 green garlic leaves
  • 2 green onion leaves
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 5 Brazil nuts
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice of one small lemon
  • salt to taste

Notes

Add all ingredients into a blending cup with a little bit of water. You can also add a tablespoon of olive oil if you prefer. This time I left it out.
Blend well but not until completely smooth. Let it cool in the fridge for an hour, well covered with lid or foil. Serve cool with fresh vegetables and enjoy.

I like to serve this pesto with fresh vegetables but also accompanied with a warm meal for dinner. For example, the other day I made the quinoa risotto from my ebook “The Working Week Reset” , prepared a plate with raw veggies and added this pesto in the middle. Just like in the picture below.
