INGREDIENTS:

1 big bunch of arugula (0.66 EUR)

3 cloves of garlic (0.10 EUR)

Juice of 1 lemon (0.40 EUR)

METHOD:

Roughly chop arugula and garlic. Add to a food processor with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and pulse until creamy. Add in sunflower seeds and briefly pulse to desired consistency. I prefer pesto with a few chunkier bits inside so I ran the food processor with sunflower seeds for only 3-4 seconds. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Serve as a pasta or rice sauce, with roasted vegetables or as a salad dressing.

To store pesto for later, place in a container, smooth surface with back of a spoon and cover with thin layer of olive oil, to prevent the air getting in. You can then refrigerate pesto for up to a week, or freeze for a few months.

Evo jedan brzinski recept za pesto, za sve one trenutke kada imate doma tonu rukole, a niste raspoloženi za još jednu salatu. Ovaj pesto je aromatičan i osvježavajuć, jednostavno savršen za vruće ljetne dane.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 šalicu pesta / 11,47 kn)

1 veliki pregršt rukole (5,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

Sok od 1 limuna (3,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

4 žlice sjemenki suncokreta (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Grubo narežite rukolu i češnjak. Ubacite u multipraktik sa limunovim sokom, maslinovim uljem, soli i paprom, pa pulsirajte dok ne bude kremasto. Dodajte sjemenke suncokreta i još kratko pulsirajte do željene konzistencije. Meni je draže da u pestu ima i malo hrskavih dijelova, pa sam pulsirala sa suncokretovim sjemenkama možda 3-4 sekunde. Kušaje i prilagodite začine.

Poslužite pesto kao umak za tjesteninu ili rižu, sa pečenim povrćem ili kao dressing za salatu.

Da biste pesto spremili za kasnije, stavite ga u posudicu, poravnajte površinu stražnjom stranom žlice i prekrijte tankim slojem maslinovog ulja, kako biste spriječili da unutra uđe zrak. Tako pripremljen pesto možete čuvati u hladnjaku do tjedan dana ili zamrznuti na par mjeseci.
