I love this pesto as a sandwich or wrap spread; and on chickpea pasta — but the possibilities are endless, really!

I look forward to hearing how you love to use it, too!

Enjoy. xo.

    Positively delicious! I added a bit more lemon juice, and only had roasted, salted sunflower seeds. A huge hit served over spaghetti squash! Thank you!
