Delicious Kale Pesto

Cook Time

5 min


6 Per


  • 5 Large handfuls of kale
  • 1 Handful of parsley
  • 40 g Pine nuts
  • 40 g of parmesan
  • 1 Clove of garlic
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 50ml Cold-pressed olive oil
  • Salt to taste

This Kale Pesto is a super easy and fast way to make a homemade Pesto or dip. While packed with great nutrition from the kale it makes a great dip for raw vegetables or a side for your main dish. Sometimes I also use it on my zucchini pasta which gives it a delicious kick.


  1. Give the pine nuts a quick roast on a dry frying pan
  2. Mix everything together in a blender and taste with salt


Serve with crunchy vegetables or use as topping on your zucchini pasta.

Sometimes I also use it as a topping on my Homemade Gluten-Free Crispbread as an in-between snack or as breakfast with a nice cup of coffee.

Anything special to remember:

  • Pine nuts can be changed into sunflower kernels
  • Will last 7-10 days in the refrigerator


Kale adds nutritional value and colour. The nutrients in kale can help boost wellbeing and prevent a range of health problems. It contains fibers, antioxidants, calcium, and vitamin K. It is also a good source of vitamin C and iron.
