Wild Garlic Pesto Recipe: Here’s How

Wild garlic pesto: You need this for the recipe

The pesto does not need many ingredients.

  • You need 200 g of wild garlic.
  • Measure out 150 to 250 ml of olive oil.
  • You also need 50 g of pine nuts or alternatively walnuts.
  • For the savory note, use 50g grated Parmesan.
  • Seasoned with a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
  • You will need a blender to prepare it.
  • The finished pesto is filled into sterilized jars with screw caps.

This is how the preparation succeeds

It is very easy to make and doesn’t require any cooking.

  • Wash the wild garlic thoroughly and pat the leaves dry. Now the wild garlic goes into the blender together with the pine nuts. Mix the ingredients into a creamy mass.
  • Add olive oil, salt, lemon juice, and parmesan. Blend again until creamy. If necessary, add a little more olive oil until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Taste everything again.
  • Pour the pesto into the prepared jars and smear a 1cm layer of olive oil over the contents.
  • Then the pesto keeps closed for about four weeks – but only in the refrigerator.
