- 1 cup Lacinato or dinosaur kale leaves, stems removed
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh baby spinach
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups giant heap of fresh basil leaves, stems removed
- 4-5 garlic cloves if medium to big sized; 6-7 if smaller size cloves
- 1/2 olive oil
- 1/2 cup raw walnuts
- 1/2 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast OR 1/2 cup fresh vegan/plant-based parmesan cheese (available at Whole Foods and other retailers)
- Kosher salt to taste


For the pesto, the sequence of adding ingredients into a blender makes a difference in the end result.

1. First, add garlic, kale, and olive oil to the blender.
2. Once roughly blended, add basil and spinach.
3. When the above are chopped (doesn’t need to be smooth at this point), add walnuts.
4. Blend until it’s a smooth paste.
5. Add nutritional yeast (or plant-based parmesan cheese), salt, and pepper.
6. If the above mix is difficult to blend or is too thick, add a little water or more olive oil.
7. Blend until smooth again.
8. Taste, then, adjust with a little more nutritional yeast or salt as needed. Be careful with nutritional yeast, it can become pungent if it’s excessive. Increase as needed in teaspoon amounts.
