Tammi's Teeny Tiny Kitchen: Arugula Pesto

 In Archives, Uncategorized



This a quick and easy way to change up a typical pesto.

I had a fairly large bag of arugula and I just didn’t want a salad, so I decided to put a twist on a typical basil pesto.




1 bag of arugula

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

handful of walnuts

1/2 cup-1 cup olive oil

2 cloves of garlic

salt and pepper to taste


Combine in a food processor and add olive oil until it is your desired consistency.

I like mine a little on the thicker side.

Arugula gives this a bit of a peppery kick and is more earthy than the typical pesto.







It’s perfect spread on a on a turkey club or a grilled cheese with fried shallots. Yum!

    Yum! I do a basil pesto with walnuts and it is so good. Next time the arugula is hanging out, it is going in the food processor.
