foraged pesto

I was planning on making some pesto and on my way to the basil in the garden I noticed a few other things that I thought I might add to my pesto.  Top left to bottom right:
basil, garlic, smartweed
purslane, lambsquarters, wood sorrel, poke

I will not cook any of these EXCEPT the poke.  You must cook poke in boiling water and pour off the water before using.  Many people say to do this 2-3 times.

This mixture will add nutrients to an already delicious mix.... oh I also will add Parmesan cheese and a handful of whatever nuts I have on hand.  serve over pasta or create your own pasta from your favorite summer squash.
