Print Recipe


  • 150 gr wild garlic leaves stems cut off, washed
  • 70 gr almond flour or Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 70 gr toasted pine nuts
  • 100 ml good extra-virgin olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste


  • Place wild garlic leaves in a food processor and blitz until broken down.
  • Add almond flour (if using) and blend until combined, then whilst the motor is going, gradually fold in pine nuts and olive oil and continue to mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Drizzle with a splash of lemon juice (I use half lemon), and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Store in a clean jar and top with extra olive oil to preserve the pesto.
  • Store in the fridge for up to a week.


This recipe makes a small jar, enough to use as a condiment for 4 people.
Make sure to wash wild garlic leaves thoroughly and pat them dry with kitchen paper before use.
