Kale and Pepita Pesto

Serves 6 Prep Time 2 minutes   Rated:

Kale isn’t just for green smoothies you know...and that is a whole discussion worth having. Kale is better digested when not completely raw...in other words, best to beat the living daylights out of it, or massage it (not even kidding) or use an acidic dressing of some sort to break down the fibres a little bit. SO this recipe does none of the above, but it does use a whack of lemon juice, which helps somewhat. The longer you leave it before consuming is probably better flavour wise, and now we now, belly wise!!

You can always massage away though, if that’s what you prefer!!
