Parsley Pesto

This is one of the kids FAVOURITE foods, and not only because they can help me make it, it tastes delicious too!  It's super easy, and it can be adapted to any herb that you have been given in mass quantities, (or have raided from someones garden), or have grown yourself of course. Even the fruit and vege shops sometimes have them at reasonable prices and in good bunch sizes too.

Basically I use parsley as my main ingredient as this is something that I get given often, and it tastes great too!  It's also wonderful with a little coriander thrown in too and makes it more 'light green'.


1 large bunch parsley
1.5 cups olive oil
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 teaspoon garlic, crushed (can put more in if you wish, just the kids find it a bit overpowering)

Blend seeds, garlic and a bit of oil together first, then add bits of parsley and oil alternatively to create a smooth mixture.  Blend until you get the right consistency.
