Wild Garlic Mustard Pesto featured on edibletorontomagazine

How can something so invasive and dreaded taste so good ? Since I discoverd a few years ago I have used in cooking. I do not encourage it to grow in my garden, but it still seems to come back every season. Edible Torronto Magazine featured my recipe and a photograph on their instagram accout last year. i can’t wait for it to be spring and to make some pesto again from my garden.
