  1. Cut into even pieces
  2. Toss in good olive oil
  3. Salt & Pepper
  4. Roast for 20 mins at 220*

Kale Pesto – If you got it in your farm box, great! If you didn’t order a farm box and came here for inspiration, make yourself at home.

  1. Big handful of Curly Kale ( We grow ours organically in Kildare
  2. Fresh Basil
  3. Mixed nuts (peanuts, walnuts, almonds) or whatever you have in the pantry!
  4. Lemon juice
  5. Olive oil
  6. Garlic
  7. Salt & Pepper

Blend all together and you have kale pesto.
