Paleo Tuna Pesto
An unexpected variation on the usual pesto! If your family tolerates nuts, try this with walnuts or pine nuts. This recipe suggests enjoying with cooked vegetables, but it is so good that it also works as a crostini spread, packable school lunch dip, in soft tacos, or on pasta.

Instructions
  1. Start your vegetables: Green beans, cauliflower or Romanesco are delicious with this sauce. Steam, roast, or sear to desired doneness, about 15 minutes. While these are cooking, assemble the sauce.
  2. You will need a food processor or immersion blender to make this sauce. Place half the olive oil in first, then add the drained tuna, sunflower seeds, lemon wedge (washed first), Worcestershire, and herbs. Slowly add the remaining olive oil, and process until smooth.
  3. When buying tuna, look for a product that has these specs
  4. Once blended, here is the consistency you’re after. Adjust salt and pepper at this point to your taste
  5. Toss sauce over warmed vegetables and serve.
