Kale & Spinach Nut-Free Pesto

Pesto tastes awesome on pretty much everything! It taste amazing on gluten-free pasta, pizza, chicken, crackers, and even scrambled eggs! Not only is it so tasty, it's also good for you! Since olive oil is used to make pesto, it's full of heart healthy fats. I also use garlic in my pesto recipe, which helps stabilize blood pressure levels and lower cholesterol levels. 

Traditional pesto is usually made with pine nuts, and parmesan cheese, but I use sunflower seeds and no cheese, which makes this recipe nut-free and dairy-free! And, it taste just as delicious without the pine nuts and cheese! 

Let's get to cooking!! 

Kale & Spinach Nut-Free Pesto
  • 3 cups baby kale
  • 3 cups spinach 
  • 1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic 
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
Add baby kale, spinach, sunflower seeds, and garlic in a food processor. Once combined, add in olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Puree until well combined, smooth, and creamy. Enjoy!!
