DIRECTIONS

  • Toast the pumpkin seeds by placing them in a skillet on medium heat until they start to brown a bit. (Or by placing in a baking dish in the oven at 475F for 8-10 minutes.).
  • Place the toasted seeds in a food processor and grind until fine.
  • Add the garlic and salt then pulse again.
  • While the food processor is running, add handfuls of arugula and parsley through the top opening of the machine.
  • Keep adding as these get blended in until all of the greens are incorporated.
  • Pour the oil through the top opening and continue blending.
  • You might have to stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the food processor.
  • Add more salt or oil to reach your desired flavor, then scoop the sauce into a jar, it will keep for about a week.
