artichoke pesto

4 Jul

A pesto with no cheese and no nuts… it’s possible.
Excellent with white beans, bread, polenta or pasta.

1 14-oz can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup packed, whole fresh basil leaves
Juice of 2 large lemons
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (or walnuts or pine nuts, really)
10 cloves garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Put everything in the food processor and blend.
