Arugula pesto - are you game?


Arugula is not to everyone's taste. Those with taste, however, love it. 4 cups arugula packed, 2 Tbsp garlic, salt and pepper, 2 Tbsp pine nuts (or in my case, salted and roasted sunflower seeds), olive oil.

Put the pesto in the food processor, and the garlic, salt and pepper, and nuts. Drizzle in maybe 1/3 cup olive oil and turn on the motor. You are done.

Dress fish with it, dress pasta with it, or dress gnocchi with it. Or use it for hair removal.

Hair removal?

I love arugula (we call it 'rocket', but I'm sure you alredy know that)...
It is lovely for pesto, a nice change from the usual basil I say.

Arugula is definitely an acquired taste...and I love it. Great twist on the standard basil pesto :)

Looks yummy! I like arugula on pizza sometimes.

I love arugula too and I can imagine how delicious it would be in as a pesto.

That's a pesto I have not had before, I bet it would be great as a sandwich spread for grilled chicken.
