The Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating Kale and Basil Walnut PestoThis pesto is soooooo good! I have been working on this recipe for a little while now and I am so pleased with the way it has turned out. We ate it for dinner tonight, stirred through some wholewheat spaghetti and spinach. Everyone had clean plates by the end of the meal! My (non clean eating) Husband even announced that this is now his new favourite Clean Eating meal! What a result!

Homemade pesto will always taste better than shop bought pesto. You cannot beat the fresh taste of the herbs. If you have a food processor you can make this in less than 5 minutes. It is so easy and so worth it!

Clean Eating Kale, Walnut and Basil Pesto is fresh and zesty! It is quick and easy to make and tastes amazing stirred through some wholegrain pasta or spaghetti. This recipe serves 4 and when I stir it into pasta I add 1/2 tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast per person. You could alternatively use parmesan cheese. If you haven’t ever made your own pesto before, give it a go! You will love it!!
