  • 7 oz baby arugula (7oz bag)
  • 4 oz fresh basil, stems removed
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  1. Add arugula, basil, oil, parmesan, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a food processor until fully processed. Might need to scrape down the sides to ensure everything is well combined.

  2. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator covered with a thin layer of olive oil for up to three days, or in the freezer for up to three months in a mason jar.
