V Arugula “Pesto” (Recipes from America’s Small Farms)
2 cups loosely packed arugula
1/4 cup walnuts
1 – 2 Swiss Chard leaves
Green Garlic to taste (garlic scapes or cloves to taste if no Green garlic)
2 Tablespoons Parmesan or Romano cheese (optional)
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
Combine the arugula, walnuts, chard, garlic, cheese and salt and pepper to taste in a food processor and process until finely chopped.
Gradually add oil through the feed tube of the processor with the motor running, processing until the mixture is a smooth sauce.
Spread it on crusty bread, mix it with noodles, or add it to sandwiches. This is an excellent way to eat your raw greens!
