Sunflower Seed Pesto


  1. Hmmmm intersting...great swap out!

  2. I'm a "pesto-freak" and I can actually eat it with a teaspoon.
    Thanks so much for sharing his unique recipe :)

  3. What a great idea for pesto! Sunflower seeds are much more affordable than pine nuts, and it looks just as tasty!

    Stopping by from Must Try Monday (#25 Beef Burgers with Bacon and Red Onion)

  4. I never knew pesto was so easy, either, until about a year ago. Yours looks great! Especially on the pizza thanks for sharing at Must Try Monday!

  5. i sometimes use walnuts instead of pine nuts and it too tastes nice...but will deff try the sunflower seed...thanks

  6. Kelly, I was laughing out loud at "the hamburger helper days"! Nothing wrong with a little hamburger helper once in a while though, lol! We were raised on it weren't we?

  7. We love pesto! I have a huge basil plant that I'm constantly having to "thin out" pesto is made A LOT! Love substituting the sunflower seeds...that's awesome. I have a friend who makes hers with walnuts. Thanks so much for sharing with Mop It Up Mondays! I'm featuring this recipe tomorrow night at the party!


    1. I definitely need to add basil to my list of things to grow next year. I'm constantly buying it! Thanks so much for featuring me, Kristi. I'm so thrilled!!


  8. Thank you so much for linking up last week at Recipe Sharing Monday. The new link party is now up and I'd love it if you joined us again. Have a great week!

  9. I can't believe I've never thought of that! We can't afford pine nuts either. I have used walnuts- but they are expensive too. I buy organic sunflower seeds in bulk through our food coop. Will be making soon!!
