Kale and Walnut Vegan Pesto

This Kale and Walnut Vegan Pesto is a staple in my kitchen for so many recipes!

Pesto is one of my favourite condiments to make. I can turn it into a sandwich, turn it into sauce for pasta, potato salad or simply a dip for crudite. There are a million different variations on pesto but for today’s recipe I’m making KALE AND WALNUT.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Course Dips & Spreads


  • blender


  • 4 cups packed curly kale
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup parsley
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup nooch
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cracked pepper
  • pinch of chili flakes
  • ½ cup +2 tbsp olive oil


  • Place all ingredients but olive oil in the food processor and pulse. Scrape down the sides and turn on the processor. Slowly drizzle olive oil in, scraping down sides as needed. Once pesto is complete transfer to a container and drizzle the last 2 tbsp of olive oil on top.


Pesto saves really well in the freezer. I have never tried freezing in ice cube trays but I do love little mini mason jars.
