Kale + Garlic Scape Pesto with Sorrel and Parsley


  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 bunch basil
  • 1 bunch garlic scapes
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch sorrel
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Strip kale and sorrel leaves off stems and remove big stems from the parsley.
  2. Place kale, basil, garlic scapes, parsley, sorrel, walnuts and parmesan cheese in a food processor. 
  3. Process, adding oil through  the feeder, until mixture is finely ground. Season to taste with salt and pepper.




Pesto is a versatile sauce that can be used in many different ways. Make a batch and store in the refrigerator for a week.

  • Stir a few spoonfuls of Kale &  Garlic Scape Pesto into a bowl of hot pasta (with some reserved pasta water) or cold pasta salad. I love adding fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and sometimes leftover grilled chicken!
  • Thin out some of this pesto with more olive oil and drizzle over a fresh tomato mozzarella cheese platter.
  • Spread some of this pesto on a sandwich on its own or mixed with mayo.
  • Stir some of this pesto into your favourite hummus.
  • Serve this pesto on top of  grilled chicken or fish.
