Sorry for missing Friday’s post, I’ve been busy with exams and then work straight away!
I was so excited the other week to accidentally stumble upon a whole hillside of wild garlic! I grabbed a big bunch of the leaves and carried them around in my bag, subsequently leaving a pungent garlic-y trail in my wake, until we went back to the flat some hours later. I popped them in a container of water and put them in the fridge so they were fresh and a little less limp to use the next day, when I decided to make them into wild garlic pesto – which was soo delicious. It’s a lot fresher, lighter and has a more delicate taste than regular pesto, and so good with so many different foods 🙂
- 100g wild garlic leaves
- 50g pine nuts
- 1 small clove garlic, crushed
- juice 1 lime
- dribble olive oil
(makes approx. 1/2 a 250g jar)
- Throw the garlic leaves, pine nuts, garlic and lime juice in a blender until thoroughly combined.
- Slowly pour in the olive oil, a little at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
- Season with the salt, and eat!
