Toru Road Vegan Kale & Kawakawa Pesto
Kale that actually tastes great! The base is raw kale with sunflower seeds and the added earthiness of kawakawa/bush pesto. Its the first of our kai that incorporates our own indigenous ingredient of kawakawa. A coarsely made pesto (at the request of Tracey's son Keenau to "make it more meaty" - even though he's vegan!)
Our Toru Road Vegan Kale & Kawakawa Pesto comes in 180gram jar, or our big whanau size 360gram jar.

Toru Road Chocoholic Granola
We've upgraded our granola to give it that lil bit extra. Our boy Keenau said we should make a granola with peanut butter, but Mum knows best, lets add chocolate, but not any chocolate, cacao nibs and premium Dutch cocoa. some pretty rose petals. NZ manuka honey makes this granola tasty as - you're gonna get addicted.
500grams or half a kilo of glorious goodness.
Toru Road Kimchi with Watercress
Our newest healthy product added to our store cupboard is our Toru Road Kimchi with Watercress. Kimchi is made by lacto-fermentation, the same process that creates sauerkraut and traditional dill pickles and we've added Aotearoa's own nutritional component, watercress to this process to give it that extra added kiwi goodness to your kai.
Try our Apple, Watercress & Juniper Berry Kimchi. A hint of juniper berries (aromatic ingredient used to make gin), coriander seeds, and red cabbage makes this gorgeous girl pink! So pretty on the plate, and super good for you. This kimchi is mild in flavour, really good for newbies to kimchi and will be ready for sale mid March. Advance orders taken now.
Any other pesto now just doesn’t cut it for me! Keep up the great work Toru Road!"

A few years ago Tracey started moving into eating healthy food, trying out vegan, organic, more wholesome and more natural foods. Buying a bunch of kale was at the top of the list - that's healthy right? Not enjoying the taste of that kale made her think that she could probably eat it if it was hidden in a pesto. Kale Pesto was born and is now a staple in her household, no longer hidden its the forefront of our business. Toru Road Kale & Kawakawa Pesto was the beginning of the Toru Road journey for her and her whanau.
