Kale isn't just for salads. This big, dark, leafy green is a staple not only in many healthy kitchens but also for vegans. Kale is a superfood loaded with tons of nutrients, like potassium, magnesium and B vitamins. It has also been said that kale is an anti-inflammatory that can assist in detoxing your body. Who wouldn't want such a healthy ingredient in their diet?
For this dish I used kale to make a healthy, hearty, vegan pesto that I tossed with cooked pasta and topped with lots of fresh tomatoes, onions and roasted red peppers. This is perfect for vegetarians, strict vegans, those who cannot eat dairy or just for someone who wants to try something different.
If you have trouble finding nutritional yeast, then go to your nearest health food store. Most times you can find it where the vitamins are located.
