Peppery Arugula pesto

with NutraPonics Astro Arugula

Toss with your favorite pasta, use as a salad dressing, or spread onto sandwiches, crackers, or toasted slices of bread!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 package of NutraPonics arugula
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. In a food processor, combine the arugula, walnuts, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and 1 tsp salt and pulse to blend.
  2. With the machine running, pour in the olive oil through the food tube in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Slowly adding the olive oil while the processor is running, will help it emulsify and help keep the olive oil from separating.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  4. For an added peppery kick, garnish with arugula leaves.

*Pesto can be frozen for up to 2 months
