dandelion pesto

Same recipe as basil pesto. Just substitute the most regal of  weeds.

2 cups dandelion leaves, chopped
4 or 5 cloves garlic, chopped
Mince the lot in a food processor while drizzling olive oil until the consistency is right. You can toss in a handful of pine nuts or walnuts if the mood strikes you. I prefer nutless pesto.
IMG_2334I freeze mine in small batches just like that [and add parmesan later, when I use it].
