Healthy, because

Even smarter

It's a real pity that the wild garlic season is only so short, because the green leaves have a lot to offer: After all, they contain 150 milligrams of the cell protector vitamin C per 100 grams. In addition, they can score points with the substance alliin, which is converted into allicin during crushing. This protects against vascular deposits and thus also against cardiovascular diseases.

Covered with oil, the pesto keeps well sealed in the refrigerator for at least a week. If you want to have some of your pesto for longer, you should prepare another glass and freeze it. You can achieve even more spiciness by adding a few chili flakes. The hazelnuts can easily be replaced by walnuts.
