Vegan Arugula Pesto from Gather & Be

Our friends over at Gather & Be are sharing another recipe with us and this time, it’s vegan AND gluten-free!

Gather & Be Vegan Arugula Pesto recipe

Vegan Arugula Pesto blends peppery arugula with garlic, lemon, and walnuts to create a truly amazing sauce you won’t be able to get enough of. The ladies over at Gather & Be served this sauce atop zoodles for a delicious and quick lunch dish that’s so good you may even want to have it again for dinner!


  • 3 packed cups of arugula
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • In a food processor or blender (an immersion blender works well here too) combine all of the ingredients apart from the olive oil and pepper. Blitz until you have a paste.
  • Add the olive oil while blending in a slow and steady stream to bring the pesto together.
  • Finish off with a few grinds of pepper.

It’s as simple as that! Here, Kirsty and Donata from Gather & Be sautéed zoodles with a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt until just tender, then added two tablespoons of the Vegan Arugula Pesto and topped it with some sliced spring onions and a dash of chopped walnuts. They served this culinary creation in the pasta plate from our Manufacture Rock collection, setting the perfect stage for the fresh and bright sauce.
