Try this recipe with parsley or a combination of kale and parsley.


  • 100g curly or Russian kale, ribs removed (The flavour of Cavolo nero is very strong so go for it if you’re a seasoned kale lover)
  • 40g almonds
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tblsp EV olive oil
  • 2-3 tblsp lemon juice or just to taste
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Optional: chopped red chilli for fire, French sorrel for an extra lemony hit!


  1. Wash the kale and spin dry or shake in a tea towel then shred coarsely.
  2. Place kale, almonds, garlic, olive oil, S&P and some of the lemon juice into a food processor.
  3. Blend to a rough paste, season to taste with salt and pepper and lemon juice.
  4. Cover with a slick of olive oil if you want to keep it longer in the fridge

Optional: Toast the almonds first and blend with the garlic before adding the kale and other ingredients.
