Chickweed Pesto

A wonderful early spring treat


  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons of pine nuts or sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 packed cups chopped fresh chickweed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in a blender

THEN...Blend well!

Serve this over pasta or just use it as a dip for crackers or vegetables. You can even freeze some in case you decide to make a lot at once.
It's delicious and filled with nutritional value as well. A great example of food as medicine.
Chickweed is high in vitamin C, calcium, and iron as well as many other important minerals. It is also very nourishing for the lungs.
