Kale Pesto Pizza

Gabriel was complaining that I don’t make basil pesto. Like never ever. I think there is enough basil pesto in the world, so I love experimenting with other greens. Tuscan kale is the sweetest variety of kale and the most tender. It makes a wonderful pesto. Maybe this recipe will change Gabriel’s mind…

Star Ingredient: Kale Raab

This week’s Star Ingredient is Kale Raab! Kale raab is just the fancy name for the spring flower buds of kale when it bolts (which means goes to seed) in the early Spring. It’s sweet, nutty, tender and crisp. You can eat it raw in a salad, cooked in a pasta dish or mixed with a stir fry. But you better hurry if you want to enjoy it…it has a VERY short season so bring on the raab before it’s gone!
