5-ingredient artichoke pesto

Artichoke pesto with artichoke hearts, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, and sunflower seeds.

5-ingredient artichoke pesto brings a zesty lemony flavor, with plenty of parsley and garlic to the fresh, buttery flavor of artichokes.


  • 1 - 14 oz. (390 gm.) can artichoke hearts, drained
  • ½ cup flat-leaf parsley (you can also use curly parsley)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days.


  • If you use frozen artichokes, aim for 1 ½ cups of hearts. Thaw them by placing them in a bowl for a few hours or steam them for 2 minutes.
  • The sunflower seeds will add a bit of crunchy texture and natural oil to the pesto. Make these optional if desired.
