Arugula Pesto

A twist on the classic basil pesto, this spicy condiment is a great addition to sandwiches, pastas, or soups. Mature arugula will contribute more pungency than baby greens, so bunched arugula is your best bet if you’re looking for an assertive flavor. If you happen to have an abundance of arugula, make a double or triple batch of this pesto and freeze it for up to 3 months. If you plan to use the pesto in small amounts, freeze the sauce in ice cube trays and then store the frozen cubes in a zipper bag.

Spinach-basil Pesto

A twist on the classic condiment, this flavorful and nutritious spinach-basil pesto is a great addition to sandwiches, pastas, pizzas, or soups. The addition of spinach and walnuts also make this a more budget-friendly option than your traditional pesto. Any of our spinach products would work well here, even our baby arugula-baby spinach or baby kale-baby spinach blends. If you happen to have an abundance of spinach and basil, make a double or triple batch of this pesto and freeze it for up to 3 months. If you plan to use the pesto in small amounts, freeze the sauce in ice cube trays and then store the frozen cubes in a zipper bag. This version uses walnuts instead of the classic pine nuts, but you could use pine nuts or even hazelnuts.
