I found myself with binders full of kale. Binders, I tell you!
I mean what could I do? They were there, in the sun, at the markets.
A surreptitious photo.
I’ve become that person. Portlandia, calling.
(Actually, Kings Cross).
It’s okay, the girl next to me taught yoga.
Anyway, I took them home.
Is that the eggiest egg you ever did see? With sautéed kale, ajvar (Serbian red capsicum relish) on sourdough bread.
“I’d put that in my face,” @autumnfagus replied.
So would I!
Here we go now!
Rev it up with olive oil, onion and garlic. Sautée the kale, add salt and pepper, then boiled water to wilt. Whilst that’s all happening, bash the walnuts open. Or find pine nuts, whatevs. Grate Parmesan cheese. Bing bango it all in the blender, with more olive oil and shake it about to blend.
Find a glass jar and fill ‘er up!
Olive oil to seal.
If you want actual instructions or a riff of the idea, here’s Lucy’s post on kale, porcini and rosemary pesto.
Like she says, it’d be great “stirred through minestrone, eaten with a spoon from the jar, spread on toast, tossed through white beans, melted into hot polenta…”
Or ricotta and pasta.
P.S: Eat it quick, or freeze. Because botulism.
