1. Toast the almonds in a hot, dry frying pan till just golden. Rinse and finely chop your kale.
2. Blitz the almonds and the kale in a food processor with half the garlic, the olive oil, the zest of your lemon, a squeeze of juice and a pinch of salt till it all comes together. Taste. Add more garlic if it needs it. Trickle in more olive oil if needed, so it’s loose enough to swirl through your soup, dress your salad or stir it through pasta.
