If you do not grow basil, you will find that using kale will help down the cost of having to buy it or it should. If you grow basil you might not have enough for the whole 5 cups of leaves that the recipe calls for. Especially, if you have a rather small plant of basil.
If you have enough for five whole cups of basil, you can turn this into just simply basil pesto! Just don’t add in the kale. It is very good with kale though I have to say. I will definitely not be going back to using only basil.
Are you ready to try a new kind of pesto?
