Had some kale in the house, but didn’t want to try the typical lemon and garlic boil and fry that I keep finding when I search for recipes online. So last night I put together a pesto with the kale (inspired by this recipe) — a bunch of parboiled kale, some boiled garlic and shallots, a third of a cup of oil, and Parmesan, all blended up in the blender while warm. I forgot that parmesan was salty, so the added salt was a little too much, but then I added some red pepper and water and undid most of the damage.
Anyway, I immediately (like, while I was eating the pesto pasta) started thinking about putting this on a sandwich somehow. That’s just how I roll. You might know this by now.
Kale pesto. Avocado. Grilled cheese. Sandwich.
So I don’t know if you can easily work this angle, but it was a great angle. Maybe the next time you plan on making a pesto, make sure you have some avocado and bread and cheddar cheese around. It’ll totally be worth it.
