4 cups coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
1 cup hulled raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
2 Tablespoons sweet butter, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Place basil, sunflower seeds, olive oil, Parmesan, butter, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process to a puree, scraping down sides often.
Transfer pesto to a small bowl with a lid. Press a sheet of plastic wrap to the surface of the pesto sauce, then seal with the lid. May be refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
Yield: about 1-1/2 cups
To use pesto: Cook 1 pound of pasta in salted water. When pasta is cooked al dente, combine 3/4 cup pesto with 2/3 cup hot pasta water in a large bowl. Drain pasta and add to the bowl. Toss to combine. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Toss again and serve immediately.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Hi there! First of all I love this blog, thank you for existing. <3 Secondly, I have a request: you've got really great birdkin/pigeonkin tags already, but it seems like almost everything in there are snack-y type treats. Do you think you could dig up some ideas for things that could work as meals or main dishes? Maybe some pastas with seeds and nuts? I'd really appreciate it!
Absolutely! I’ll find some right now.
I showed this to my boss and was saying how awesome it was and next thing I know, she signed us both up for Graze ! You get a box of healthy snacks delivered to your office every week for just $5 (including shipping), which is pretty incredible.

I’ve just ordered a box for me and my Dad! It’s a great way for us to snack on healthier things I think ^-^ I hope he likes the gesture because it’ll be a surprise c:
I also just ordered this for myself and for my dad to try as well! He’s been trying to eat a lot healthier lately and this looks really nice…!!

Just signed up for this! A cheap way to keep healthy snacks in the dorm. Plus, some of their stuff sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try it.
These guys actually have some great kin food, oh my gosh!
I have half a mind to go through the foods offered and create custom kintype-themed groups of four…
