Arugula Pesto

arugula pesto rocket rucola vegan arugula pesto rocket rucola veganEvery once in a while when there’s no basil at home, I make this peppery pesto using arugula instead. Arugula pesto works well as a spread for crostini, a pasta sauce or even as a replacement for ketchup with crispy baked potatoes or a frittata.


1 large bunch arugula, cleaned and trimmed

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped finely

6-8 almonds

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Salt and pepper, to taste

It is as simple as… blend all the ingredients in the blender!
