Wild Garlic Pesto

Wild garlic is in season at the moment (check our our blog for more info!) so we thought we’d give you a fantastically versatile Wild Garlic Pesto recipe, to keep your cooking seasonal.  It’s really easy, and super cheap if you decide to head out to the countryside to forage for your wild garlic… And more importantly, it is truly delicious!

WILD GARLIC PESTO (1 jar)

50g Wild Garlic Leaves
25g Pine Nuts
1 Garlic Clove, peeled and crushed
175-225ml Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
35g freshly grated Parmesan
Salt and Sugar, to taste

Put the wild garlic, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil in a food processor, and mix.  Put all the contents into a bowl, and fold in the parmesan.  Season to taste.  Store the pesto in a sterilised jar, in the fridge, and as and when you use it, pour a little olive oil over the top of the jar’s remaining pesto, to ensure it stays fresh.
