This parsley pesto recipe is a tasty way to use some of this super-healthy fresh herb.
Parsley is loaded with nutrients - especially vitamin K, folate, iron, vitamin C and vitamin A - so I love using it to make super-healthy vegan recipes.
I wrote a whole article this week on Healthy Eating Starts Here about parsley health benefits that you can check out if you're interested.
I used pistachios in the recipe, but you can easily sub them for pumpkin seeds.
Both pistachios and pumpkin seeds are high in iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and phytosterols.
Pistachios stand out for energy-supporting B vitamins, while pumpkin seeds are especially high in immune-boosting zinc.
I love to use this and other pesto spooned on top of a warm soup, as a sandwich spread or as the base for a yummy vegetable pizza.
Prep time: 15 minutes
