Kale pesto

5.Pulse nuts and garlic in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add kale, oil and vinegar; pulse to a fine paste. Add parmesan, season; pulse until just combined. Makes 1¼ cups.

We used a baby leaf micro herb mix of sorrel, parsley, coriander (cilantro) and radish.

Leftover pesto can be covered with a thin layer of oil in an

airtight container, then refrigerated for up to 1 week.
