Walnut Basil Kale Pest0 {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

You may be thinking, "Another Pesto Recipe? Didn't you just post one 2 weeks ago?" Yes, another pesto recipe, but this one is different! I love both recipes, but they both have a different flavor and texture. This recipe uses walnuts as the base, opposed to cashews in my last recipe. I also snuck in some kale for a little superfood action! This pesto is definitely thicker and creamier than my previous vegan pesto, especially with the small addition of tahini. I love throwing this over kale gnocchi, zucchini noodles, brown rice bowls, and brown rice pasta! This recipe is clean, vegan, and gluten free.
