So simple to make this great accompaniment..! You can never have enough Wild Garlic recipes either.

Wild Garlic


Couple of good handfuls of Wild Garlic leaves (about 100g)

50g Parmesan Cheese

50g Pine nuts

Maldon Salt

Black Pepper

100 ml Olive Oil

Firstly collect your Wild Garlic leaves and dry them carefully. Then take your Parmesan Cheese and grate it on a fine grater. Fine shred your Wild Garlic Leaves and then add to a blender, add your Pine nuts, seasoning and the Cheese to the blender as well and the Olive Oil and blend. Check and correct your seasoning.

Don't blend the Pesto too much, you will want a coarse but even texture. Decant into sealable jars (I always keep my old mustard and jam jars and re-use them!), and top up with a little extra Olive Oil until the Wild Garlic Pesto is completely covered. Then store in the fridge!

You can also use Garlic Mustard as an alternative to the Wild Garlic later in the year.

Wild Garlic Pesto is great with Tomatoes, Salads, Pasta's and Cheeses.. Absolutely stunning with a warm Chicken Salad! Toss some pasta in the pesto and serve it with Wild Garlic flower garnish. It's so good!
