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.

A glass jar filled with green pesto sauce is placed on a dark surface, surrounded by fresh basil leaves and scattered pine nuts. Nearby, a small dish of vibrant beet hummus adds a pop of color and contrast to the scene.

  1. 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!
