Lately when I make pesto I use a 5 oz box of arugula, 1 cup of walnuts or some other nut (although different nuts play out differently and you may need to use less or more, probably less), and at least 4 cloves of garlic. I have to coax the entire box of arugula through my mini food processor but by adding a little bit of oil at a time and being patient, I can do it. I’m into the coconut oil lately. It seems so far like the best choice. I use the liquid variety for pesto. Works great.
4 Cloves of Garlic
1 cup walnute
5 oz box arugula
1/2 cup coconut oil
First put the garlic through the food processor, then add the nuts and process, then the arugula in batches along with enough oil to get the whole box of it through the processor. Add salt and pepper.
