Recipe's preparation

    Kale Pesto
  1. Place kale into the rice basket in a clean sink. Boil the kettle & pour boiling water over kale until it just lightly cooks the kale, then place the kale into cold water straight away to cool it down & stop the cooking. Squeeze excess moisture out of the kale.

    Into the Thermomix bowl place the (zest - if using) cheese, chilli & garlic. Chop for 10 secs speed 10. Add remaining ingredients including the cooked kale & chop for 5 secs speed 10.


Accessories you need



The original recipe was from Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar book. I was very suprised how delicious this is & now I am addicted!!

You can add spinach leaves as well.

Dairy free option just leave the cheese out or use macadamia nuts instead tmrc_emoticons.-)

    I absolutely love this recipe. It is robust and tart, perfect on sourdough bread and poached eggs.

  • Tasty, but I would use less

    Tasty, but I would use less lemon next time. I used lemon and some rind, which was a little too much.
