¼cupwaterto help blend (if using blender vs. food processor)
lemon juiceone wedge
Add the kale, nuts and spoon the avocado and garlic into the food processor and start pulsing. If you're using a blender, add all the ingredients and some water to blend.
Slowly add olive oil through the spout of the food processor. If you don't have a food processor with a spout, just add it in small increments into the bowl and then pulse.
Squeeze a bit of lemon once it's blended to the right consistency - you can make it as smooth or chunky as you like it
People like different consistencies for their pesto - I typically like mine to have a bit of bite to it (this takes about 1.5 minutes to blend in my Vitamix). If you want it smoother, you can blend a bit more on a higher setting (or add a bit more olive oil)
I've suggested adding water to help with the blending - this is to help soften the kale leaves as you're blending. Feel free to leave out if your blender can accomplish this without water!
