Chickweed pesto is delicious, fresh and nutritious! Pick fresh from your garden or area that you know has not been sprayed. If you are picking in public area be sure to wash it in a vinegar bath to be on the safe side.
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup of fresh chopped chickweed
2 cloves garlic
1/4 Pine nuts
Salt and pepper (try fresh ground)
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Chop your chickweed first before adding into the blender with other ingredients. Blend together and enjoy! Chickweed pesto can be used in the same ways you would use traditional pesto made with basil. Try over noodles, dipping sauce or with eggs or sandwich spread.
