Wolfie's Nip Sauce Recipe

Shhhhh, it a sekret!!! Dis Wolfie's Nip Sauce.

Wolfie's Nip Sauce

  • 2 cups packed fresh catnip leaves (may substitute half basil or spinach)
  • 2 cloves garlic*
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts (may substitute walnuts)
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino cheese

  1. Combine the catnip, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of the oil and process until fully incorporated and smooth.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. If using immediately, add all the remaining oil and pulse until smooth.
  5. Transfer the pesto to a large serving bowl and mix in the cheese.

If freezing, transfer to an air-tight container and drizzle remaining oil over the top. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw and stir in cheese.

Best served in Wolfie's Nip Sauce Pot.

*Note: If serving this sauce to cats and dogs, please omit the garlic as it isn't good for us. The recipe as it stands is a delicious pasta sauce similar in flavor to basil pesto.
