Got a bunch of wild leeks in my foray into the wilds yesterday.  We got this recipe from a Belarusian friend.  The pesto will keep a few weeks in the refrigerator.  It’s great as is, but we also add some mayonnaise or sour cream before serving, just to balance it a bit.  

  • 500 grams packed wild leek leaves
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 100 grams cup cashews or sunflower seeds
  • 50 grams ground Parmesan cheese
  • sea salt to taste

I think this will be a great appetizer for toast. What do you eat this pesto with? In general, I have realized over the past month how many there are delicious and most importantly dietary recipes that are prepared very simply. My friend advised me to try Noom program (link to those who are interested I'll leave below) and I was surprised that eating everything I want I can lose weight. I cook new delicious dishes every day and lose weight! I lost 4 kg in a month without effort. In addition, I noticed how my skin changed, it seemed to freshen up and the puffiness went away. -

Welcome Tracey,

Toast will be fine.  We usually just put it on a baguette.
