Living in a small space doesn't mean you can't live a big life. In fact, the time and money saved means more freedom to do the things that matter most to you.

Arugula pesto

Arugula pesto

VEGAN: skip the parmesan / GLUTEN-FREE / SERVES: 6 / COST PER SERVING: $1.5


arugula, usually make a bag at a time

fresh lemon juice

1 garlic clove

1/4 c parmesan cheese

1/4 c pine nuts or walnuts

1/4 c olive oil

salt + pepper


Takes about 10 minutes.

In a food processor combine arugula, garlic, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, and pine nuts. Salt + pepper to taste.

I make pesto with arugula instead of basil. It's cheaper and available year round! This also tastes great with walnuts, which are half the price of pine nuts. This pesto is amazing on eggs, toast, roasted vegetables, and meat.
Pro tip: pesto freezes beautifully! Freeze it in your ice cube tray and then transfer to a freezer bag for convenient individual servings.
