I love pesto and am always looking for new recipes that put a spin on the classic basil/pine nut combo. Parsley and cilantro are very powerful natural green plant foods, great for detoxing heavy metals out of the body.


    4 clove garlic

    1/3 c. macadamia nuts

    1/3 c. sunflower seeds

    1/3 c. pumpkin seeds

    1 c. cilantro

    1 c. fresh parsley

    2/3 c. extra virgin olive oil

    4 tbsp. lemon juice

    sea salt to taste


Soak the nuts and seeds overnight to release their enzyme exhibitors.

Combine parsley, cilantro, and olive oil in a food processor. Process until chopped.

Add garlic, nuts and seeds, lemon juice, and sea salt. Process until mixture is finely blended into a paste.

Store in dark glass jars if possible. Refrigerate or freeze. Enjoy!
