  • Thanks for showing a unique way to use all of those seeds that stem from carving out a pumpkin. By utilizing these seeds in a recipe, one may seem to take advantage of its nutrient content.

  • This is a wonderful recipe that I have made many times in one form or another (though never with epazote). Despite the popularity of pumpkin seeds in Mexico, Mexican cooks do not make pesto. I think this is due to the great tradition of keeping to their culinary roots. Some cooks are becoming more adventuresome and trying international recipes, like pesto, but they are very rare.

    Can you get epazote in the US and Canada? I have never been able to find it out of Mexico, but perhaps someone is growing and supplying it. Sadly, there is no substitute for its unique, earthy flavor. I love adding it to a pot of black beans.

    • Yes. I’ve found epazote north of the border – at least the U.S. It’s generally near the fresh herbs. Last year I had even planted some in my community garden with hopes of sharing and expanding fellow gardner’s horizons – but unfortunately, I planted it in a place where it got continually trampled on.

  • I am definately going to try this one….wait first I must learn what epazote is. Help me!

  • Fantastic recipe for pumpkin seeds. And, it’s so versatile. This would be great with meat, eggs, enchiladas, and more. Sounds delicious!

    • The pesto is pretty thick, so if you want to use it more as a sauce, add more stock or water to thin. I’d start with at least 1/2 cup.

      October 13, 2010
  • This is fantastic. You are very good at these flavors. So I am not surprised how good the pesto is. But its the relationship advice that seems so well… sage! GREG
