Kale Basil Pesto

2 heads of kale, stripped off stalks and torn
4 c basil packed loosely
1/4 c lemon juide
1 1/2 c olive oil
1 c walnuts
1/2 c pepitas no salt
1/2 c parmesan
3 t salt
5 cloves garlic ( or less if you don’t love it as much as me)

I am always trying to find creative ways to enjoy more dark leafy greens. This tastes really good.

Food process all ingredients together and enjoy! You might have to process the kale in batches, but then you can throw it all in together. It makes a little over a quart. YUM. Great on salads, meats, crackers, as a dip, or spooned out of the jar!
