Anti-Inflammatory Pesto

Anti-Inflammatory Pesto


OMG...I could eat this anti-inflammatory Pesto all day long AND it's not too late to make up a few batches to freeze before the winter months!

Did you know that the volatile oils in basil contain a compound called eugenol, which mimics the action of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen? (J. Danulik, RHN).

2 cups basil leaves (tightly packed)

3/4 cups extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds (or hemp hearts)

2 to 6 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp grey sea salt or pink rock salt

2 tsp lemon juice

Combine in a food processor and blend until smooth
