Instructions

Pesto From the Sea

  1. Thoroughly rinse the kombu with water, making sure all the pickling salt has been washed off. Dab dry and cut into small pieces.

  2. Puree the kombu, nuts, garlic, basil, arugula, olive oil, and lemon juice in a food processor until the mixture forms a smooth paste.

  3. Put the pesto in a glass jar, cover with a layer of the olive oil, and store in the fridge for up to two weeks. Always serve with a clean spoon to maintain freshness.
