After seeing the crazy price of pine nuts while shopping at the grocery store, I knew that I needed to change my recipe idea… and a new, more affordable plan emerged.

Sunflower seed pesto!


  • 1/4 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until completely combined
  2. Enjoy with pasta, fish, chicken or as a spread in sandwiches
