I love wild garlic pesto sauce just as much as the traditional basil pesto recipe.
It’s LOADED with tons of flavor, incredibly easy to make, and as an added bonus, it’s totally gluten-free.

Ready in just 5 minutes, all you only need to make this easy recipe is:

- Salt to taste
HOW TO MAKE WILD GARLIC PESTO

Serve with pasta or over baked potatoes. Add to a salad, with cooked meat, or simply on top of toasted bread. YUM!
TIPS FOR MAKING WILD GARLIC PESTO
- You can find and forage wild garlic, also known as ramsons, in many public parks in Europe and America.
- You can replace wild garlic leaves with basil leaves for basil pesto.
- Wild garlic’s brief season is a source of excitement in the Fine Food Specialist office. Wild garlic pesto is often used in Italian fine dining.
- If you cannot forage for wild garlic where you are, most Chinese shops sell Chinese garlic chives (also a seasonal vegetable) that can be used as a replacement. It tastes similar but the hint of garlic is a lot weaker.
