Wild Living – Wild Garlic Pesto

There’s nothing quite like making your own pesto using foraged ingredients. This wild garlic pesto couldn’t be easier to make and tastes delicious with pasta, drizzled over soup, roasted veg, on pizza or even in a sandwich – it’s extremely versatile – so why not go wild!

Wild Garlic Pesto


150g wild garlic leaves, washed and roughly chopped

70g parmesan cheese (or vegetarian/ vegan alternative)

1 lemon (zest and juice)

200ml extra virgin olive oil

100g walnuts, toast for 5 mins at 180°

Salt and pepper to taste


Blitz together the walnuts, wild garlic leaves, parmesan, lemon zest and juice, then slowly add the olive oil and keep blending, season to taste. Enjoy!

Note: be sure you know how to identify wild garlic before collecting any, pick from an abundant patch and leave some behind.
