  • 1 bunch basil leaves
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add the herbs, sunflower seeds, garlic, and sea salt to a blender or food processor. Begin to process and slowly add the olive oil. Feel free to add more olive oil until the mixture becomes a smooth paste. Cover and store in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Extra virgin olive oil provides some healthy fat; you could sub in walnut oil, flax oil or another healthy oil. Try it on zucchini noodles, on salmon, on roasted veggies, or diluted with more oil and some vinegar as a homemade vinaigrette.
