  • 150 g spaghetti
  • 3 cups wild garlic*
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast + more to sprinkle on top
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling water according to the package instructions, then drain and reserve a cup of cooking water. 
  • While the pasta is cooking, place the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it's a nice smooth pesto. You might have to scrape down the sides.
  • Add the pesto to the drained pasta, toss and add 1-2 tablespoon of cooking water to thin out the pesto until all the pasta is coated. 
  • Then divide the pasta onto two plates and sprinkle with more nutritional yeast flakes. Enjoy!


*If you don't have wild garlic you could alternatively use fresh spinach and add in a garlic clove for a quick pesto pasta dish.
