Wild garlic pesto

My kids absolutely love wild garlic and eat it by the fist full when it comes into season. It has loads of health benefits being rich in vitamins A and B complex, folic acid and has both antiviral and antibiotic properties. It is also good for the heart lowering blood pressure and is said to help cleanse the liver, it's a bit of a super food really. This recipe for pesto has so many uses, it can be stirred into pasta, used as a dressing once loosened with a little olive oil or even used to marinade a leg of lamb or rubbed under the skin of a chicken. Who'd have thought being healthy could be so tasty!

2 large handfuls of wild garlic leaves
100g cashew nuts (or nuts of your choice).
100ml Olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Place all the ingredients in a measuring jug. Using a slick blender blend until smooth. Store in the fridge for up to one week.
