Wild Garlic Pesto Recipe



It may be a little late in the year to be publishing this recipe but I thought I would share it anyway. Wild garlic (Ramsons) is a fantastic plant which grows in abundance in hedgerows and woods across the country.

I am sorry if the measurements are a little vague, with hindsight I probably should have weighed out my ingredients a little more!

  • Carrier bag of wild garlic
  • 120 grams of pine nuts
  • 80 grams pecorino
  • 50 grams of parmesan
  • good glug of olive oil
  • handful of basil and parsley I had growing in the garden
  • salt and pepper

Blend all the ingredients in a blender, note that you can change the ratio of ingredients too your personal taste. It may also be worth bearing in mind that although it may be a little overpowering it does mellow somewhat when added to hot pasta!
