Kale in the food processor?

Lazybones here. I love kale and would love to eat more of it (though, my family may not agree, except for caldo verde), but I swear that chopping it is a deterrent. Would the food processor do an acceptable job of it, or would it just obliterate it?
I'd try it myself, but I haven't had time to figure out my new food processor yet. (Again, lazybones here.)
Chopping it by hand is the only way to go, IMO.
You can try a FP but it will be impossible to get it shredded uniformly unless you process it in very small batches and you'll have to be very careful not to turn it into the texture of frozen chopped spinach, unless that's what you're after.
rip out the stems
wash the leaves
stack the leaves
slice crossways to the width you want.
(I know you know that. What I wonder about is whether or not you want to make kale pesto, cuz that's what you'll get if you add garlic, cheese, nuts and EVOO to the food processor w the kale - which you have to destem/wash/rough chop anyway...)
