Great for Pumpkin Ravioli

Yield: 1 serving
Community Recipe from


  • 4 cup(s) Kale roughly chopped
  • 1 clove(s) garlic
  • 1/4 cup(s) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup(s) Kale cooking liquid
  • 1/2 cup(s) parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup(s) pepitas toasted


  1. Bring a pot of water to boil with a big pinch of salt. Add the kale and boil for about 3 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain the kale, reserving at least ½ cup of the cooking liquid. In a food processor, chop the garlic and kale, and then add in the olive oil and cooking liquid in a stream. Blend until the kale breaks down into a pesto-like sauce. Finally add in the Parmesan cheese and pepitas, and blend a little bit more until the sauce is smooth.
