Walnut & Basil Pesto

This pesto is my favourite when paired with mushrooms - it's used in my Mushroom, Spinach and Pesto recipe.

Makes 1 jar

1 handful walnuts
1 handful sunflower seeds
1 handful basil
1 handful parsley
1 handful spinach
3 gloves garlic, peeled
Pinch salt
Zest 1/2 lemon
Olive oil


Blitz all ingredients together in a food processor, or use a pestle and mortar to crush/grind. Whilst blitzing, slowly drizzle in olive oil until the desired consistency is reached - I like mine quite rough cut/crunchy.  Transfer to an airtight container.  Refrigerate and use within 3 days.
