Kale Butter

This is for all you kale “cult members” out there! There seems to be two kinds of people when it comes to kale – those who have no idea what it is and those who are obsessed with it. I don’t have much experience in between the two, only one or the other. We eat kale almost everyday so I suppose that puts us in the “cult member” category.

I found this recipe in the Engine 2 Diet book. It’s really good on crackers, pasta, veggies and sandwiches/wraps. I smear this on my toddler’s sandwiches with white beans and soy cheese and she devours it!

Ingredients:

* 1 bunch kale, rinsed and chopped (I use black/lacinato kale – use stems too)

* 1/2 cup walnuts

* 1/2 cup water – (use water leftover from steaming kale!)

* Salt, to taste

Directions:

- Steam the kale for 5 minutes, until tender

- Blend the cooked kale with the walnuts and 1/2 cup of the green water from steaming. Blend until smooth.

- Add salt to taste, if desired

My toddler LOVES this! Can you tell?

    I’m having a serious case of Vitamix envy. When I make this in my regular blender it doesn’t look nearly as good as yours!

    • I use my Vitamix almost every day! Worth every penny… Oh Santa!?!? LOL!! :-)

        I second the Vitamix envy. The Kale butter that I made WAS Delicious, I followed your recipe! Unfortunately, it’s not creamy. I have to buy a food processor soon!!
