When it comes to this Kale Spinach Pesto + Tomato Bruschetta recipe, the word ‘delicious’ is an understatement. This simple, yet complex in flavor dish is the perfect healthy snack or appetizer for any occasion or gathering, especially during the holidays. Made in just 15 minutes and entirely Vegan.
We’re officially into Thanksgiving week and I’m sure that many of you are in full prep mode at this point. Over the weekend, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the many social posts and photos of those who have had their Friendsgiving. It’s such a cool invention and I definitely want to join in on this trend next year!
But as of right now, I’m just prepping for this new week. I must admit that this weekend was so tiring from all that I hd to do. Work was pretty hectic and of course, I had to get in a recipe or two for Orchids + Sweet Tea.
With no podcast until the first week of December, I plan to use this time away to fully hone in on a few things, especially the future of this blog. I really can’t believe how quickly 2019 has come around, but I’m excited.
Of course, I’ve witnessed Black Friday deals happening already. Crazy, right? While I’m not a huge Black Friday shopper (I don’t think that most of it’s deals are worth it!), I am considering a gift or two within this week’s deals. I know. But I’ll keep things to my online way of doing it. Haha.
Anyway, now that we’re literally just a few short days from Thanksgiving, I’ve been seriously coming up with my menu. As mentioned before, I’m leaning a lot more towards a larger number of vegan dishes, but we’ll see!

Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet, lining it with parchment paper if preferred (optional).
Place slice baguette slices flat unto your baking sheet and brush with extra virgin olive and bake them in the oven for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
Meanwhile, make the Kale Spinach Pesto.
To Make Kale-Spinach Pesto Sauce:
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until sauce becomes creamy. **NOTE: If needed, add a bit more lemon juice or water (1 Tbsp at a time), until desired consistency is met. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Once bread slices are toasted, remove them from oven and generously spread the Kale-Spinach Pesto unto each slice. In a separate bowl, toss together the sliced tomatoes, garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and let marinate for 5 minutes. Now, add tomato mixture atop Kales Spinach Pesto spread. Repeat until all bruschettas are made. Garnish with dried parsley, if desired.
