Homemade healthy pesto

 We try to eat pesto at least once a week. Whether it is an addition to a home-made pizza, or

served with fish. It adds a tasty zest which the kids love, as well as many health-beneficial nutrients.

Playing around with my recipe in an attempt to make it even healthier, I have added kale and even spirulina over time. The spirulina is optional, as it adds its own distinctive taste to the mix, in addition to a myraid of nutrients that include high iron levels and a variety of different B vitamins.






*2 cups fresh basil leaves

*3 cloves of garlic (peeled)

*5 large kale leaves (stems removed)

*1/3 cup roasted pine nuts

*½ tsp pink Himalayan salt

*½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

*½ cup of olive oil

*1 tbs organic freshly squeezed lemon juice

*parmesan cheese to taste (I like to use a lot of it, at least ½ cup)

*optional: 1 tsp spirulina powder
