Delicious Dandelion Pesto

Dandelion Pesto Recipe

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Dandelion LeavesYou will need

  • 300gr dandelion leaves
  • 200gr raw goat cheese or parmesan
  • 4-8 cloves of garlic, I use 8 🙂
  • 150 ml olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt
  • 100gr of toasted walnuts or hazelnuts or pine nuts
  • Juice of half lemon
  • Zest of a lemon


Wash well dandelion leaves. Blanching the leaves by immersing them in boiling water for 20 to 30 seconds will help reduce a sometimes present acrid taste. If you use younger light green leaves blanching is not necessary.

Mix until smooth all of the ingredients in the food processor or blender.Dandelion Pesto Superfood

Depending on the type of cheese you used you may need more or less olive oil.

Serve as a salad, with pasta, as a side dish, with buckwheat or spelt pancakes etc.
