Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Perfect for pasta, as a spread or for antipasto platters!

Directions:

Variation:

TIPS:

Is suitable to freeze.

Don't over blend the ingredients as the pesto can take on a gluggy texture.

If you cook the garlic in a little water for a few minutes, it takes away that astringent taste raw garlic has.
