This vegan arugula walnut pesto is thick, creamy and rich in flavor. As there is no cheese, it's vegan and healthier than the regular pesto.

  • 50 grams (1 cup) arugula washed and dried
  • 30 grams (1/4 cup) walnuts
  • 1 clove small garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. In a tall container, put all the dry ingredients and 2 tablespoons of cold water.
  2. Using an immersion blender, chop the ingredients for a few minutes then pour in the extra virgin olive oil (a little at a time) and blend until creamy and smooth.
  3. If the arugula walnut pesto looks too thick, add more water until it reaches the desired consistency.
  4. Enjoy!
