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



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. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year.
