My lovelies, have you ever heard of bear's onion or wild garlic? If you haven't, you've been missing out on something delicious. It's a leafy plant that grows only for a very short period of time in spring. It has a garlicky taste, a bit similar to chives but a dash more delicate yet richer. It's one of our favourite spring pesto ingredients since it's totally unfussy! You can eat it on a piece of bread with tons of different toppings, like salmon, ham, tuna, sunny side up egg or even on its own. Best part? It's super healthy and it will keep your whole body in a top notch shape.
So if you're intrigued, make sure to pick up a bunch of it next time you're at the Farmers' Market. You won't be sorry:) Here is the recipe.
Bear's Onion Pesto
- A bunch of bear's onion leaves (washed and chopped)
- 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese (grated)
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic (grated)
- 1 handful of pine nuts
- A dash of salt and pepper to your taste
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until well combined and smooth. Serve immediately and enjoy! Ta dah!
Lovelies, what do you think? Would you try it? Have you already? xo
P.S: Also, rucola and avocado pesto and sun dried tomato pesto bread - yum!
