  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until mostly smooth.
  • Enjoy :-).


  1. I highly recommend using a food processor to grind up this pesto.
  2. This pesto will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
