Vegan Arugula Pesto

Vegan Arugula Pesto

Pesto is one of my favorite Italian sauces. Not only can you make great pasta, but you can use it to boost the flavor of other dishes. This one is an Arugula version which is very common here in Italy.

  • Blend. Put all the ingredients on the food processor or you can also use a small blender. Blend for 2-3 minutes until smooth.
  • Adjust with water for fluidness or nutritional yeast for thickness.



You can adjust how creamy or fluid you want the pesto adding some more water or olive oil. This one is a thick version.
You can make a half/half - Basil/Arugula version as well. They play well together.
You can pre-cook for 2 minutes the garlic cloves on a saucepan with a lid to make its flavorless pungent.
