Chia Kale Pesto

This Chia Kale Pesto is packed with calcium, magnesium, protein, fibre, iron, omega 3 6 and healthy fats. It’s great for dips, pasta, fish, meat dishes.

Kale is heavily sprayed with pesticides and other chemicals so buy organic kale if you can.

Method:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the chia seeds and water, let it stand for 20 minutes to make a thick chia gel.
  2. Place the walnuts, cashews/almonds, garlic, chia gel, basil, kale, Himalayan salt, black pepper and lime juice in a high performance blender (I use the Optimum 9400. Buy it here) until coarsely chop. Drizzle olive oil in a steady stream until incorporated. Taste and adjust seasonings.

  4. Enjoy it with pasta, dip, spread on bread, serve with meat, fish or vegetable dishes.
