Dino Kale Pesto

I often like to cook a butternut squash over the weekend so I have some on hand for recipes like this one. This homemade Dino Kale Pesto is a great source of the thyroid-supporting nutrients selenium and zinc–use it as a quick and tasty addition to any protein or salad, or as a veggie dip!
