BROCCOLI, KALE, PARSLEY, AND WALNUT PESTO


2 cups broccoli, cut into medium-sized florets and trimmed

2 cups kale, coarsley chopped

1/3 cup parsley leaves

big pinch of salt

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 lemon, juice and zest

3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated


Steam broccoli until tender. Throw kale and parsley in with broccoli for final minute of steaming. Make a paste with the garlic and salt with a mortar and pestle or with a chef's knife on the chopping block. In a food processor or blender, place garlic paste, walnuts, olive oil, lemon juice/zest, parmesan, broccoli, kale, parsley, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times, scrape down the sides, pulse again. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. Or maybe more lemon. Serve right away. Or store in a jar with a thin layer of olive oil on top to prevent browning.
