A flavoursome alternative to store-bought pasta sauce, this vegan kale pesto is fantastic on pasta or as a pizza topping.
Pasta is a staple food in our house and my kids are really fond of pesto. To vary our meals, I started making my own pesto mixing in different herbs and vegetables.
This kale pesto is one of my favourites as it has plenty of character and I love its vibrant green colour. Adding almonds and nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy taste and texture so there is no need to add extra cheese on top. Blending all the ingredients, you can, of course, adjust the consistency to have a smoother or chunkier pesto.
For maximum flavour, make sure you use some high-quality extra virgin olive oil.
Quick and easy to make, it will keep up to two weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.
