I love pesto. And probably I am not the only one! For this Low FODMAP pesto with a crunch, I had this huge basil plant that needed to be trimmed and, using everyday staple ingredients I decided to make my version of pesto. Without garlic, of course, so it is Low FODMAP.

I used a sunflower seeds instead of expensive pine nuts and it turned out really well. They gave a bit of crunch to the pesto. Also grated Red Leicester cheese has been used and it did as good job. I think that grated cheddar would be nice as well.
