Arugula Pesto

arugula-pesto-520I’ve discovered that you can make pesto out of many combinations of greens and herbs.  You could add parsley to this recipe.  Yum.

2 cups combination of packed arugula leaves, blossoms and Kale
1/2 cup of shelled walnuts
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 bulb fresh garlic
1/2 garlic clove peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

Toast the nuts in a pan over medium heat until lightly brown.

Combine the arugula, kale, salt, walnuts, and garlic into a food processor. Pulse while drizzling the olive oil into the processor. Remove the mixture from the processor and put it into a bowl. Stir in the Parmesan cheese.
