Directions:
Directions:
Take one bunch of kale and chop it into large chunks. Put it in a large pot with about one half inch of water and let it steam for about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and fill the pot with cold water to stop the kale from cooking further. In a food processor, combine everything. Add olive oil a little at a time, until you get pesto consistency.

Personal Notes:
I don't have measurements, just guess. Use lots of greens and then about 1/2 cup of everything else. This is soooo yummy that I don't even make basil pesto anymore. The kids devour it on pasta and I slather it on pizza and anything else you like with pesto. I get kale and collards from the farm every week, but surely they have it at the grocery store too. Such a great way to get veggies in the kids!
