A great staple pesto recipe that’s perfect for spreading on toast, stirring through pasta, stuffing chicken breasts, drizzling on pizza, you name it! It’s one of the most delicious, versatile sauces/condiments there is and it’s always best made fresh.

This version is a little different from your classic basil pesto, using kale as the main base, parsley for a fresh herbiness, and some dried native herbs such as lemon myrtlebasilanise myrtle and pepper berries for a wonderful flavour and aroma that permeates the pesto and whatever you put it on beautifully. This one is particularly nice served with a BBQed rack of lamb, not sure you can get much more Aussie than that!
