This easy, healthy cilantro pesto is a great way to change up the usual basil pesto and is a delicious accompaniment to many meals.
Hi guys! Happy Wednesday (and Happy Birthday to my Madre)! 🙂
I unofficially dub this week sauces and spreads week on the blog. First the chia jam, and now this lovely spread:
My little herb garden has exploded. The basil is still waiting to catch up with the cilantro, but in the meantime, I was excited to make something using the abundance of this:
I was inspired to make a pesto after quickly going through the tub I bought with the bolani bread at Costco. It was especially fantastic on bread, but would also be a great sauce for zucchini noodles, a wrap filling or chicken topping.
Here’s what I used:
- 1/4 cup roasted almonds
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 large clove garlic
- 1 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
- Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until finely mixed.
I’ll be back later today with some adventures 🙂
