Kale pesto with sunflower seeds (Raw,vegan)

kale pesto

Traditional pesto is made from basil leaves with pine nuts. Not everyone can afford such luxury, yet everyone should be entitled to their healthy dose of the vitamins every day. This is how this true poor man's pesto was born. It makes the best use of the raw kale. Spread it over your sandwich, add to pasta, wraps or grilled veggies.


Makes 1 270 ml jar

  • 3 tightly packed cups fresh kale rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil or flaxseed oil
  • 1/2 cup toasted or raw sunflower seeds or mix of sunflower seeds with sesame seeds
  • juice of 1/2-3/4 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, and/or 3 cloves braised/marinated garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano, majoran or basil, lightly packed
  • Salt to taste

  1. Place kale into the food processor, add lemon juice, herbs, garlic and seeds and mix roughly. Periodically push the mixture down as it is not going to mix well. If it doesn't mix at all, add a little bit of water.
  2. Keep running processor on the slow speed and slowly add the oil. Blend well, place into the jar with tight lid.
