  • Summary

    This green pesto owes its intense and powerful flavor to the use of kombu. It’s such an easy recipe that you can experiment with the ingredients as much as you like. The arugula and basil, for instance, can be substituted with any leafy green of your choice. And the pine nuts can be replaced by any other type of nut, such as cashews or hazelnuts. You can even use sunflower seeds! Serve the pesto on crackers, on a grilled vegetable sandwich, or with a bowl of pasta.

    Ingredients

    • 1.4 ounces (40 g) fresh kombu (or a mix of kombu and wakame)
    • 1/3 cup (50 g) roasted pine nuts
    • 1 small garlic clove, minced
    • 1 cup (25 g) fresh basil (including stems)
    • 1 cup (25 g) arugula
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for storing
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
