Arugula Pesto Recipe


  • 2 cups of packed arugula leaves, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup of shelled walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil of your choice
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


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!

Yield : 1 Cup
