Healthy Kale & Spinach Pesto

Healthy Kale & Spinach Pesto

I made this over the weekend and I ate the whole thing by myself, not sharing with a sole! It’s that good, and it’s basically healthy and a great alternative to have fresh pesto in the winter, when basil not exactly plentiful!  Also, no nuts, just a mix of kale, spinach, lemon zest, lemon juice, a couple sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil and grated Parmesan cheese, easy peasy!
