Last week I picked up a bunch of arugula on a whim at the grocery store. I’m a crazy one, let me tell you. Woo-hoo! Others get tattoos on a whim, married in Vegas on a whim, quit a job on a whim. I, well I buy greens. Some might say my life is boring, but I say boring is wonderful. We had a couple of really tough years and I have loved every minute of this boring year. Well, not the minutes with potty training accidents, or the minutes that I stuck my hand in a blender, but most of the minutes have been as blissfully uneventful as life with two young children can be.
Back to my spontaneiously purchased arugula. I hereby present…..
3-4 c washed and rinsed arugula leaves
1 medium avocado
1/3 c pine nuts
2 Tb lime juice
2 Tb EVOO
salt to taste
1 c water
Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve.
It tasted a bit like pesto and I may try to make a arugula pesto someday to try over zucchini. Pine nuts are up there with coconut in the ‘foods I can’t get enough of’ category, so I liked this soup a lot. It did taste a bit summer-y for me and I think I’ll hold off on making it until the weather warms up. Which in Texas, may mean tomorrow.
