Raw Vegan Wild Garlic Spring Greens Pesto Recipe

Traditional Pesto calls for generous quantities of basil, but wild garlic and other herbs, greens and edible weeds also make for equally tasty pestos. This Raw Vegan Wild Spring Greens Pesto uses wild garlic, plentiful in Spring, various foraged edible wild greens : chickweed, dandelion, lamb's quarters, ... and spring baby spinach. Cashews and flaked almonds bring crunch, while nutritional yeast replaces the traditional hard cheese flavour, and this version leaves the garlic out, due to the heavy presence of wild garlic. Absolutely delicious on toast, pasta, eggs, in sandwiches, to make a pesto risotto or even as a dip for raw vegetable sticks.
