Cashew Arugula Pesto

Cashew Arugula Pesto

Homemade cashew arugula pesto. This pesto is made with cashew nuts, arugula leaves, garlic, extra virgin olive oil & parmesan. Perfect for pasta or canapes!

I think you can’t go wrong with making homemade pesto of any kind. And those who haven’t tried making one I highly recommend doing so. About 2 years ago I had a go at making the authentic Italian basil pesto with pine nuts. I loved it! But pine nuts are quite expensive so I have made it only a few times since.

What a shame I tell you this. Because it is not only about basil and pine nuts. I know it now but I didn’t know it back then.

OK. Let’s get to the point: In this magazine I see arugula pesto recipe. I have arugula in my fridge! So I literally run to the kitchen to try it. Like that very moment. Without reading what other ingredients there were! I soon found out that their arugula pesto recipe WAS about basil after all. But hey, I wasn’t going to run to the shop to get some. I experimented with the few ingredients I had in my pantry and the result is well worth a try!
