Healthy Recipes: Basil Kale Pesto With Sweet White Miso

By Susie Falco, WBZ-TV Nutrition Expert


1 cup fresh basil

1 cup lacinto kale, torn into strips

1/2 cup olive oil

2-3 cloves garlic (depending on how much you like!)

1 cup walnuts

2 heaping Tablespoons of sweet white miso ( I like Miso Master organic brand)

about a half of lemon, squeezed

a small amount of water

Simply combine all ingredients except the water in blender or food processor. Add water if mixture is too thick. Should be the consistency of a paste, not a liquid. Normally just 1/4 cup water is sufficient.

Toss with hot pasta, toss with potatoes, use in omelets, top off some pizza, or even spread on a sandwich!

Freezes well in ice cube trays. Then you just have to pop them out as needed.
