Pumpkin Seed Pesto Recipe

Recipe from Cooking for Fertility by Kathryn Flynn:

Pumpkin seeds are a good source of omega fatty acids and zinc, both essential for conception, hormone balance, sperm production and proper immune function. Garlic and basil vitalize the energy flow to alleviate PMS, blood clotting, fibroids, and release stuck emotions.  And it’s delicious!!


1 1/2 cup pesto

2 cups fresh basil

1 cup kale

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 garlic cloves, finely minced

Juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon

Optional: For a creamier texture, add 1/2 avocado, peeled and cored

Blend ingredients in food processor, using lemon juice to achieve desired consistency.  Delicious on gluten free pizzas and brown rice pasta!
