Celery leaves – 2 cups

Garlic – 2-3 cloves

Salt – 1 tsp

Freshly ground whole pepper – 1 tsp

Olive oil – 2 tbsp


1. Steam the celery leaves for 2 minutes till it turns a rich green. Set aside to cool.

2. In a blender, add the other contents mentioned under ingredients along with the steamed celery leaves.

3. Grind to a fine paste and store in the refrigerator/ freezer in an air tight container.

Note: We didn’t add pistachios or walnuts to the pesto. Feel free to add some if you wish. Add a spoonful of this while making a white/ bechamel sauce for pasta to create that extra zing!
