Sunflower Seed Basil Pesto

Yes, I know I said I was going to blog more last week, but yet again life got insanely busy.  Its been filled with work, beach trips and best friend times.  My best friend is back in town for a short period, I’m trying to spend as much time with her as possible.  We’ve been wanting to take pics, but we just end up ranting for hours and forgetting all about it.

I do however have some photos from the beach.





Okay, onto the recipe.  This is a great dairy free, nut free basil pesto.  Its great on sandwiches or pasta.




  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup roasted sunflower seed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


Place everything in a food processor and blend until smooth.  


Taste and adjust seasoning.

I’ll try and blog more this week. I’ve got a lot of recipes to share.  Happy Wednesday

    Such a beautiful beach! I love this vegan pesto- I recently made a vegan pesto, myself! I used it on a pizza instead of tomato sauce! Have fun with your best friend!!

    And best friend time & beach time sounds like a great excuse for not as much blogging. Enjoy your time together =)
