A Mid-Summer Treat!

Kale Cashew Pesto (GF, DF, Vegetarian, Paleo) 

2 cups kale, roughly chopped, steamed and packed tight (about 3-4 cups raw)
¼ cup scallions, chopped 
(or for a twist on the end flavor, use half an onion, carmelized – YUM!)
½ cup cashews, raw or roasted
2 cloves roasted garlic
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup full-fat coconut milk
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Rough cut kale and place in steamer basket. Steam for about 8-10 minutes or until greens turn a vibrant green and are sufficiently wilted. Measure and place in food processor with all remaining ingredients, except sesame seeds, and process until smooth. Fold in sesame seeds and serve over grilled meat, roasted potatoes, fresh vegetable slices or crackers. No matter how you serve it, you are sure to enjoy!
