Kale and Pistachio Pesto @ Jessica in the Kitchen


  • 2 cups kale, washed and de-stemmed
  • ¼ cup de-skinned pistachios (if you can’t find de-shelled you can do them yourself)
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
    4 cloves roasted garlic or regular garlic cloves
    1 teaspoon fine sea salt
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Add kale, pine nuts, and pistachios to a food processor and pulse until combined, scraping down the sides after a each pulses, for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the olive oil, roasted garlic, salt and pepper next and continue to pulse until combined, for about 2-3 more minutes. Feel free to add more olive oil if you want a more runny consistency, or more nuts if you want a thicker pesto
