This pesto recipe is delicious on top of a bed of zucchini noodles, quinoa, or chicken. It's very simple to make, and it's dairy-free. We recommend this recipe to anyone who is suffering from heavy metal toxicity because it will actually chelate mercury and other heavy metals out of the body.



  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium source)

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine source)

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium sources)

  • 2 cups packed fresh cilantro (coriander, Chinese parsley) (Vitamin A source)

  • 2/3 cup flaxseed oil

  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C source)

  • 2 tsp. Dulse powder

  • sea salt & pepper to taste



Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender or food processor until the cilantro is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts, and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and process until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add sea salt and pepper to taste and store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year.
