Green City Growers is harvesting a lot of arugula lately! Here is a simple recipe for those looking to creatively transform their arugula into a something delicious: arugula pesto! This goes great with pasta and fresh veggies, roasted potatoes, seasonal fish, or any other way you might use basil pesto.
Toast the nuts in a pan over medium heat until lightly brown, or heat in a microwave on high heat for a minute or two until you get that roasted flavor.
Combine the arugula, salt, walnuts, olive oil, Parmesan and garlic into a food processor.
Be sure to taste it and if you want more of a certain flavor, add more!
