Recipe: Kale Spread

DenaMay 16, 2014


  • 3 handfuls of kale
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can white beans
  • small handful of raw sunflower seeds
  • small handful of raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • salt & pepper to taste


Add kale, garlic, and beans to blender. Pulse until smooth. Add cashews, seeds, almond milk and salt & pepper to taste. Pulse until smooth. Serve!

This spread can be used as a party dip, as a pesto for rice, pasta, or quinoa, as a spread on toast, and even as a dressing for meat, fish, or eggs. I’ve tried it on everything and I love it on everything. I make it at least once a month. I hope you like it as much as I do.

    Oh my, it looks so good! I like kale, but I don’t like eating it by itself most times. This is a great idea and I can’t wait to try it! Thank you for the recipe! 🙂
