We had a ton of cilantro piling up from our CSA so I decided to give a cilantro pesto a try. I made this up based on my standard basil pesto recipe.
I failed to take a picture – but it just looks like pesto!! 🙂
- 4 bunches cilantro, with about 2 – 3 inches cut off the ends (about 9 oz once ends of stems are cut off)
- 1/2 cup raw walnuts
- 3 large garlic cloves
- 1/2 cup EVOO
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
Combine everything into a food processor and process until completely minced. Serve over pasta and veggies or however you wish!
