Spicy Arugula Pesto

5月 27, 2021 2 min read

This spicy arugula pesto is a smooth paste that can be used in pasta recipes or as a dressing for salads. It still has the nutty, pungent flavor found in usual basil pesto recipes but is more peppery in taste; it is also vegetarian-friendly! Multo™ by CookingPal® has the perfect recipe to easily sauté nuts, blend greens, and emulsify ingredients together with oil all in the same pot. This recipe is packed with flavor and nutrients and can be used to compliment many different dishes.

How to make spicy arugula pesto with Multo™ by CookingPal®?

1. Sauté pine nuts.

Sauté pine nuts in the bowl with the heating elements found at the bottom of Multo™ that allow you to cook, boil, and steam food. This process enhances the nutty flavors of the pine nuts.

2. Blend ingredients.

Multo™ has many settings to efficiently blend ingredients. Add the required ingredients for the pesto one by one and watch them mix together beautifully. Multo™’s sharp blade will also chop the greens during the mixing process.

3. Emulsify with oil.

Remove the measuring cup and slowly pour the oil into the bowl without needing to open the lid. This step binds the pesto together for a perfectly thick paste.

What are the variations of this spicy arugula pesto?

  • This recipe, although most commonly used as a sauce for pasta dishes or as a salad dressing, can be used for many other different purposes:
    • As a dip for fresh, crunchy vegetables and crackers 
    • As a spread on crostini, French bread, sandwiches, or a spread served with charcuterie platters
    • As a marinade for chicken, fish, and seafood 
    • As a topping on omelette or pizza 
  • Cashews can be substituted for pine nuts. They will give a very similar flavor to the pesto, almost totally mimicking the flavor of pine nuts.

 

How to store the pesto?

  • For best results, eat this pesto fresh or within 2-3 days of making it. Store leftover pesto in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • If freezing the pesto, do so in small containers (i.e. ice cube trays) and thaw individual portions as needed. Freezing the pesto like this makes it quicker to thaw when you decide to use it.
