Rocket (Arugula) & Walnut Pesto
This rocket (arugula) and walnut pesto is an extremely low carb spread, dip or sauce. It is super quick and easy to make, and ultimately tastes delicious!
- 115g / 4oz (3 cups) rocket (arugula)
- 2 tsp garlic minced
- 40g (⅓ cup) walnuts
- 30g (⅓ cup) parmesan cheese, grated
- ½ tsp salt
- ⅓ tsp black pepper
- 80ml (⅓ cup) olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper/ foil.
Spread out the walnuts on the prepared baking tray and bake them for 8-10 minutes, until stirring halfway through, until lightly browned.
In a food processor, purée the arugula, garlic and walnuts together, until the arugula has broken down.
Add the parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and purée until incorporated.
On a low speed, keep the food processor running, and slowly pour in the olive oil, until smooth.
Transfer to a serving/storing dish.
