Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale (8 ounces), large ribs removed
  • 1/3 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano
  • 3 tablespoons garlic confit 
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup garlic oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Bring a medium pot of water, salted to taste like the sea, to a boil. Fill a large container with 5 to 8 quarts of ice water; this will be used to "shock" the kale after blanching.

Blanch the kale in the boiling water until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to the ice water using tongs or a slotted spoon. When chilled, drain in a colander and pat dry to remove excess moisture. Roughly chop.

In a food processor or mortar and pestle, combine the chopped kale, peanuts, Romano and garlic confit; pulse until somewhat homogenous. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and garlic oil until fully incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
