Pesto is Italian for “pounded” meaning it used to be made my mortar and pestle but I love making this uncooked sauce in my mini food processor. It is traditionally basil, pine nuts, parmesan, garlic and olive oil. Now don’t get me wrong the classics are always the best but when you can find other alternatives it’s fun to step outside the box. A while back when I started on my kale kick (eating kale chips every day) I decided I needed to change it up a little bit before it became too monotonous . That’s when I found a pesto grilled cheese on Pinterest but saw the pesto was made with kale. And it was perfect. So I made an even bigger batch to freeze for later.
