In the Wild Garlic Pesto post, I promised a delicious recipe to make with the pesto – and here it is: Wild Garlic Pesto Pinwheels. They are super easy to make and awesomely delicious. They are flaky and super garlic-y! Even my boyfriend loved them and he doesn’t even like wild garlic! They are the perfect snack for parties because they are finger food and so quick to make! Oh – and they look cute!

The recipe uses the homemade Wild Garlic Pesto & vegan Cashew Parmesan from the blog. Once you have those they are super quick to make. You should always have Cashew Parmesan at home – because it’s the most awesome thing to sprinkle over pasta, risotto and so much more!

To start with the Pesto Pinwheels just roll out the vegan pastry dough…

… spread out the Wild Garlic Pesto with a spoon or knife…

… and sprinkle over the Cashew Parmesan.

Roll it in.

Close the edge by pressing it down carefully.

Cut the roll in about 30 slices. It helps if you wet the knife, you’ll be able to cut through easier!

Place the pieces on a baking sheet and put them in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. They should get a lovely golden color! These awesome pinwheels are the reason why I’ll be looking forward to wild garlic season from now on!

Yes: I was looking up “vegan puff pastry” and came across that Pepperidge Farm was vegan. I used it and this was a huge success for my friend. . She said she could have eaten every one of them!

Regular old Pepperidge Farm puff pastry dough is "accidentally" vegan! For thsoe of us who don't live near whole foods!

Hi, just wondering why the Pesto is green? Is wild garlic green, are you using leaves to get the colour? Just using the cloves wouldn't give the green colour. Can you tell me what you buy? I'm in Canada. My neighbours grow their own garlic which has been harvested already.

Hi Sharon, the pesto is green because of the wild garlic - which is a green leafy plant! It's also called ramsons, buckrams, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek or bear's garlic. If you head on over to the wild garlic pesto recipe, you'll see photos of the wild garlic on the first and last photo. Here is the wikipedia page of the plant, according to that one wild garlic is native to Europe & Asia, so I'm not completely sure if it is available in Canada. Wild Garlic is in season around april and may, so it's best to look for it on farmer's markets at that time? Good luck finding it! :)
