Recipe… Kale & Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Pesto is one of the most versatile of sauces, and can make any meal a taste explosion. I like to add my Kale & Pumpkin Pesto to a big bowl of edamame bean spaghetti, for a protein packed, flavour packed, super fast evening meal, but you can add it to just about anything.

Pesto is one of my quick and simple meals when I’ve had a long day. It’s so gratifying, as I can go out into my garden, pick some fresh kale and rosemary and produce a meal within around 20 minutes. This gluten free and vegan recipe proves that you don’t need cheese to make a rich and tasty pesto.
