Vegan Wild Garlic Pesto

Tis the season for wild garlic!

I have a confession though...

I am not much of a forager myself, although I love the concept I’m always worried about poisoning myself and picking the wrong thing! So I choose to play it safe and instead let others do the foraging on my behalf.

This week I was super excited to find some wild garlic in my Abel and Cole veg box; which I’m informed was wild foraged by a wonderful man called James. Thank you James!

So I made this recipe for you, courtesy of James.

I love wild garlic because it:

Is an amazing immune booster

Has antibacterial and antimicrobial qualities

Lowers blood pressure

Reduces cholesterol

Improves blood circulation

Is a wonderful heart protector and blood purifier

Tastes delicious!
