Garlic Mustard Pesto


Author Notes: This simple recipe brings out the mildly garlic flavors of this wild invasive herb. Great with pasta or as a salsa for meat or fish. Try to use the light green tips, not the dark green bottom leaves which can be bitter. Adapted from preparation by Roger Ma, Restaurant Daniel.tama matsuoka wong
