This no-oil pesto is a powerfully nutritious sauce packed with superfoods: Kale, Walnuts, Garlic. And it’s as delicious as it is nutritious. This is a new must-have all the time sauce in our house. Serve on everything! More please!

2 cups loosely packed kale leaves
3/4 cups walnuts
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup unsweetened soy milk

Put all the ingredients except the miso in a high powered blender and blend until creamy. Pour into a saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally on medium heat until sauce begins to bubble. Remove from heat and let set for a minute or two. Stir in miso. Toss with pasta, whole grains, steamed veggies or serve as a dip.

    Soy milk does very bad things to me. Have alternative suggestions?

      Any unsweetened non dairy milk will be fine. Almond, Cashew, Oat, Hemp, Rice, etc. Each will impart a slightly different flavor.
