Healthy kids recipes - easy cabbage pesto

Easy cabbage pesto

This is a great alternative to basil pesto and very healthy. Cabbage contains so many nutrients (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_nutrients_are_there_in_cabbage) and mixed with the below ingredients is very yummy added to freshly cooked pasta. A sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan on top will be a winner with little people's taste buds and they won't even be aware of the goodness they are getting.


8 leaves of cabbage, cooked in boiling water for 4 minutes until tender
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
A handful of pine nuts
Olive oil to loosen


  1. Add all the ingredients into a food processor apart from the oil
  2. Turn the processor on and add the oil slowly until you have reached the right consistency
  3. Warm it up just before serving and add it to freshly cooked pasta
Top tip:

If you don't have a food processor, a hand-blender does the job just as well.
