Wild garlic pesto
Both King and I really love the mountains, we go hiking, camping, and we forage a lot. During spring in the UK wild garlic grows abundantly everywhere in the woods. Last week, we went hiking in north London and picked a lot so I want to share my very best wild garlic pesto recipe with you.
This wild garlic pesto is super tasty. You can add it to pasta, spread it on toast, drizzle it over salads, or just pop a little in your favourite sandwich… it’s just delicious and goes well with everything.
This recipe is very straightforward and is pretty close to how you usually make basil pesto.
Personally, I love using pine nuts for my pesto but feel free to replace them with any other nut of your choosing. As far as I know, hazelnuts, cashew, walnuts, almonds, macadamias, pecans, pistachios and pumpkin seeds all work well with this recipe.
Add all the ingredients to a small food processor or blender.
Blend for 3-5 minutes until a paste forms.
If you’re using a small processor like me, you may need to use a spatula to scrape the sides to make sure everything is blended evenly.
This pesto is best used on the same day but it can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 1 week or stored in a freezer for months.
King loves this pesto so much, so I made almost 2 litres of it and have put it in small containers to store in the freezer so I can have it all year round. 😁
