Ingredients:
  • Garlic - 4 to 6 cloves
  • Kale - about 2 small bunch
  • Hemp seeds or toasted walnuts - 1 1/2 cup
  • Lemon juice (about 2 lemon) - 4 tablespoon
  • Salt - 1 1/2 teaspoon
  • Ground pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Extra-virgin olive oil (more if desired) - 1/2 cup
  • Optional - ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Optional - Red chilli flakes (as required if you want to add some kick)
  • Pasta - whole wheat - as required ( about 4 cups )
Procedure:
  • Make the pesto: In a food processor, add the peeled garlic cloves and process until the garlic is minced.
  • Add the kale, hemp seeds, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Turn on the food processor and drizzle in the oil. Process until the pesto reaches your desired consistency, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Taste and add more lemon, salt or pepper if necessary. (You can thin out the pesto with more oil, but if you’re serving with pasta, keep in mind that you can also thin it out with reserved pasta cooking water, if you want to.)
  • Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, according to package directions.
  • Mix in required amount of pesto with the pasta and sprinkle grated cheese on top if you like.
  • Serve it hot and enjoy.
