wild garlic & basil pesto

Nothing as scrummy as a simple fresh herb pesto. This basil and wild garlic pesto is just that. 


  • 2 large handfuls of wild garlic leaves (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 large handful of basil leaves
  • 12 good glugs of olive oil
  • grind of salt & pepper 


  1. Bung the lot into the liquidiser.

  2. Pulse it to pull all the leaves down. I have to push the leaved down between pulses to try and help them reach the blades and get blitzed. (this is the slow part of the process - but only takes a few minutes) If your handfuls are bigger than mine - it's not an inexact measure and the leaves are not getting dragged down add a bit more olive oil.

  3. Once the leaves are all chopped add the salt and pepper and blitz to a lovely pesto consistency. 

  4. Pop into an airtight jar and store in the fridge.
