rocket pesto

Photobucket

We got a tonne of rocket in this weeks vegie box (if you are interested in joining the Moreland Organic Fruit and Veg CoOp please let me know!) so I had to find a way of using it all up.

ingredients
2 bunches of rocket (this filled my standard food processor bowl)
2/3 cup of almonds lightly toasted
1 tsp of miso paste (mellow barley or white - do not use if you want soy free)
juice of one lemon
1 to 2 cloves of raw garlic
1/4 olive oil (though you may want more)
fresh pepper

method
1. Lightly toast the almonds in a fry pan and then whizz all ingredients in food processor.

notes: This was seriously DELICIOUS. I served on toasted ciabatta with fresh chilli and chipotle. I ended up eating this by the spoonful. Soooo lovely!

  3. YUM! I made this over the weekend and it was great. I didn't have almonds so I used pecans instead, also no miso paste - I'm not familiar with it and am curious as to what flavours it would add to the pesto. I'm not a fan of rocket generally (too peppery) but Andy loves it - this is the first recipe I've found where I can eat and love it. Thanks for posting!
