What to do with the Mother-Load of Arugula

So my arugula has totally kicked in.
any suggestions ??

I had an arugula salad with olive oil, lemon just and shaved parmesan, which was great.

You could sub out the lemon juice for a decent balsamic, with maybe just a pinch of sugar or drop or 2 of honey if too acidic for you. Our favorite Italian restaurant used that as a base for carpaccio, which you don't eat of course.

You can make pesto with it.

Pesto is an excellent idea. You could throw in some basil or parsley to "thin" it down. It would probably freeze well in an ice cube tray without the nuts and cheese, then you could use it in soups. Oooh, maybe smush it up real good in the FP and mix it with avocado for guacamole.

Neighbors are a really good deal. We either hand stuff to them, or do drive-bys.

I second the pot of soup!

Cream Of Arugula Rocket) Soup Recipe - Food.com

Also a quiche with steamed/sauteed chopped arugula would be nice. If that is too much work then toss the cooked arugula into a batch of scrambled eggs!

Good luck!

There is always Beet Carpaccio with Arugula.

Speaking of, I copied this pic the other day instead of copying the recipe, which I probably wouldn't follow too closely and out of sheer laziness. 'Course now I have to tax my brain to remember they used a balsamic dressing.

This one is Sliced Roasted Beets /Arugula Salad. With Walnuts and Gorgonzola. I think these ingredients both complement and will hold up to each flavor.

You can freeze Pesto in meal size portions in zip lock freezer bags.

Pesto, sautéed like spinach, in soups, dried to add to soups next fall, pasta sauce, in an omelet, anywhere you'd use spinach...just because it is usually eaten raw doesn't mean it isn't also delicious cooked.
