PD Cooking Tips

  • Buy Pre-Cut Kale

    To help reduce the preparation work of tearing the kale, bagged, pre-cut kale would work well. Be sure to remove the stems before blending.

  • Freeze Extra

    Freeze extra pesto into ice cube trays, then store in freezer-safe zip-top bags. A cube of pesto makes a wonderful addition to a rich, vegetable soup. It can also be thawed and used in other recipes later.

  • Sit While Cooking

    Try sitting on a stool while preparing this recipe. Standing for extended periods of time can be exhausting, especially while cooking.
