Surpriiiiise! Were you expecting something different? A pancake perhaps? I know, I weaned you into pancakes every sinking Friday for the last 9 weeks, and then I lay the smack down on ye with kale pesto? Before you hang up on me, hear me out.
Yes, we are taking a small break from The Pancake Project so that I can bring you this kale pesto recipe to improve your standard of living….and perhaps a little green for St. Paddy’s Day. The Pancake Project will return next Friday for the very last pancake post (for now).
This kale pesto is a cinch and a half. It takes about three and a half minutes to make and it makes your pasta, sandwiches, fish and chicken screeeeaaaam with flava! And the nutrition oh by golly, the nutrition!! Healthy fats? Ding! Vitamins? Ding! Mouthwatering tastiness? Ding, ding ding!
Kale is full of fiber, Vitamins and folate and walnuts are full of protein and omega fatty acids. And, and aaaaaand did you know basil has anti-cancer properties to it? It is a natural antimicrobial, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory. Plus, basil helps protect cells while cancer patients are undergoing radiation (Source: The Cancer Fighting Kitchen Cookbook). The earth is full of healing and prevention tools.
