Foraged Food and Skincare! Recipe's for foraged ingredients.
We are a big fan of foraged food and skincare not only for the eco credentials, sustainability but also for the massive health benefits that truly are unrivalled from anything you can get from the supermarket.
Today though we thought we'd bring you a few super simple recipes that you can forage yourself or like us cheat a little and buy online, we bought the wonderful ingredients from Bello at Wildfood Deliverys who delivers her foraged food to 5 star Mitchlin Resturants, they turned up promptly and super fresh. You can also email Slow Foods UK for a local forager near you!
The taste was surprising, a much deeper flavour but still very pleasant, and the whole family enjoyed including the kids.
We used Bello's garlic pesto sauce but you can forage and make your own pesto sauce using wild garlic, pinenuts, nutirional yeast (or Parmesan), salt and olive oil.
We cooked the pasta drained the water, then added the pesto sauce, and wild mushrooms, roughly chopped.
Cooking for another 5-10 minutes on medium heat.
Then Voila! Serve on plates and for the non vegan recipe simply add pine nuts, parmasan or grated cheese to taste. For Vegans leave this out or add nutritional yeast or vegan cheese.
