Start by preparing the pesto. Peel the garlic clove, remove the germ, crush it. In a blender, put the basil, garlic clove, 1 tablespoon of pine nuts and Parmesan, salt, add a splash of olive oil and grind in sequences. Add a little olive oil until you get a slightly thick texture but not too much. Pour into a jar, close it and put it in the fridge.

Wash the arugula, dry it gently. Wash the tomato, cut it into slices. Cut the mozzarella into slices. Remove the seeds and white membranes from the pepper, cut into strips.

Toast the hamburger buns. Cover the base of the hamburger buns with the barbecue sauce. Garnish with arugula, pesto, tomato slices, mozzarella, arugula, pesto, pepper. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Seal the burgers and enjoy immediately.


It’s best to prepare most of the filling at the last minute, but the pesto can be prepared the day before. In this case, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
