Cilantro is a healing, tasty herb that has been proven to chelate toxic metals from the body within a relatively short period. Combined with the benefits from the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser. Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead and aluminum, thus assisting in the removal these toxic metals from our bodies.
- 4 cloves Garlic
- 1/3 cup Brazil Nuts (selenium)
- 1/3 cup Sunflower Seeds (cysteine)
- 1/3 cup Pumpkin Seeds (zinc, magnesium)
- 2 cups packed fresh cilantro – coriander, Chinese parsley (vitamin A)
- 2/3 cup flaxseed oil
- 4 Tbsp lemon juice (vitamin C)
- 2 tsp Dulse powder
- Sea salt to taste
Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the cilantro is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts, seeds, dulse and lemon juice. Mix until finely blended into a paste. Add a pinch of sea salt to taste and blend again. This pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, or pasta.
Store prepared pesto in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last throughout the year.
