Tutta Verde Herbal Pizza

This recipe is so easy, delicious, and all-around awesome that I’ve been making it pretty much every weeknight for the past two weeks.

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 small lime or ½ medium-sized lime
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ small jalapeño pepper, seeded and ribs removed
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp chickpea flour or other flour
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 bushel organic kale, chopped with stems removed
  • 1 tortilla. I’ve been using Food for Life’s Black Rice Tortilla

 

Preparation

Blend the cashews, water, extra-virgin olive oil, lime juice, shallot, garlic, jalapeño pepper, nutritional yeast, chickpea flour, and sea salt on the highest setting.

Place the kale in a large pan and pour the sauce on top. Heat over medium, while stirring the sauce in.

Begin heating the tortilla over medium heat on a pan or in the oven at 350.

Once the kale has cooked down and tortilla is slightly crispy, remove from heat. Top the tortilla with cheesy kale mixture and serve!
