Is it still called pesto when it's not made with basil? I suppose the rest of the sauce is the same: nuts, olive oil, and parmesan cheese get blended into whatever herb (or in this case vegetable) you're using. The Fiddlehead pesto calls for fiddleheads or asparagus. I wanted to use fiddleheads, and anticipated the spring harvest season all through our long winter...but! I then missed the short window we have to pick the curly fern sprouts. Oh well. They always say fiddleheads taste just like asparagus, anyway. It's a tasty dish. Creamy, light, quick, and healthy, it's a great weeknight meal.
First, blend all the pesto ingredients in a food processor.
