Kale and Basil Pesto

So last night I was getting a snack from the fridge when I saw half a container of kale and a bunch of leftover basil. I also spied 1/2 a container of parmesan cheese. I decided to make a version of pesto. Real pesto has just basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, and parmesan cheese. The only ingredient I didn’t have was the pine nuts. All I did was add 3 heads of garlic, the kale, basil, and olive oil and a bit of salt to the food processor. I enjoyed it with some leftover steak, and then on some pita chips. You could add with other meats, fish, pasta, seafood, eggs; the possibilities are endless! Delicious!
