Pistou is a cold sauce from the Provence region of France that is typically made with garlic, basil, and olive oil. Think pesto, sans nuts. It goes great with pasta, chicken, or even spread on some bread! This paleo Green Chef version swaps arugula in for basil.
Arugula Pistou (paleo)
⅔ packed cup baby arugula
⅛ teaspoon garlic, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 ¼ teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Combine all ingredients except oil in a blender. Mix on medium speed for 30 seconds. While blender is running, slowly pour in oil.
