Raw Sunflower Seed Pesto


This is an amazing living pesto! I have jumped away from the traditional and used sunflower seeds and oil for a full bodied flavour  that would compliment your raw pasta perfectly! Or use it as a salad dressing! Yummers!

2 cups, washed, loosely packed stemmed fresh basil

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1-2 cloves fresh garlic

1/4 to 1/2 cup sunflower oil, as needed

3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Himalayan rock salt, to taste

  • Combine the fresh herbs, sunflower seeds, and garlic in a food processor  and process the mixture until it turns into a coarse meal.
  • Slowly add sunflower oil in a steady drizzle as you pulse the processor. Process until it becomes a smooth paste. Add enough oil to keep it moist and spreadable.
  • Season with salt, to taste.
