basil pesto_from inspired to share

We love pesto on anything! Paleo pizza (we love almond meal or cauliflower for the crust!), steamed broccoli slaw for a pasta substitute, chicken, anything really! It would be delicious drizzled over these Stuffed Mushrooms!



  • 2 cups of fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, rinsed and drained
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp mineral sea salt



Add basil, oregano and seeds to a food processor and process until smooth. Drizzle in olive oil (up to you how runny you like your pesto!) then add garlic, lemon and salt. Process again until desired consistency is reached. Enjoy!


Once you’re a pesto-pro, experiment with different nuts or greens. We also love walnuts in pesto.


Makes about 3/4 cup
