Vegan Arugula Pesto

See this bowl of deliciousness? 👀

It’s vegan, gluten free and we can promise you, you won’t be missing a thing! Vegan Arugula Pesto blends peppery arugula with a kiss of garlic, a sparkle of lemon and earthy walnuts for a truly amazing sauce that you’ll want to have with everything. Here we’ve made zoodles and slathered the pesto on it for lunch and honestly? We might have it again for dinner, that’s how good it is! 😋 Excellent to have on hand for all those dishes that could use a bit of extra.



Ingredients


3 packed cups arugula

Juice of one lemon

1/2 cup walnuts

2 medium cloves garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground pepper


Instructions


In a food processor or, if you’re using an immersion blender, a large bowl, combine all ingredients apart from the olive oil and pepper and blitz until you have a paste. Add the olive oil while blending in a slow and steady stream to bring the pesto together. Finish off with a few grinds of pepper.


Here, we’ve sautéed zoodles (spiraled zucchini) with a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt until just tender, then added two tablespoons of the Vegan Arugula Pesto and topped it with some sliced spring onions and a sprinkling of walnut pieces.
