Poor man's wild garlic pesto!

Making a traditional pesto with all that basil and pine nuts can end up being quite a costly little endeavour. Here's a super easy and delicious garlicky alternative.


  • 2 big handfuls of wild garlic
  • 50g sunflower Seeds
  • 3tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt to taste


Roughly chop the wild garlic, put in a food processor with all the ingredients and blend. Season to taste. Use as you would normal pesto and enjoy the extra garlic hit.
