Sunflower Seeds and Parsley Pesto
Sunflower seeds and parsley pesto is a very smooth, rich and tasty sunflower seeds pesto that will make your pasta or any other dish oh so delicious.
Adding sunflower seeds in the pesto instead of nuts is a wonderful idea to incorporate sunflower seeds in your diet. Even you can make this pesto for someone with the nut allergy and they would love it.
The sunflower seeds pesto tasted very rich, tasty and had amazing flavours from the roasted sunflower seeds. We served it on top of spaghetti and we all had a wonderful and satisfying lunch.
I have been keeping a batch of this pesto in my freezer and whenever those sudden hunger pangs bite us, I would just defrost a jar of pesto, cook some pasta and viola lunch is sorted.
