Cilantro Pesto

Posted on May 01, 2015 in Recipes

Cilantro pesto is great on pizzas or sandwiches and delicious with tacos or rice.

Start by putting however much cilantro you want to use into a food processor. It will blend down to a much smaller quantity than what you start with so I would really fill the bowl of your processor.

Then add:

  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • a small handful of walnuts (could use another nut)
  • several small chunks of cheddar cheese
  • optional: juice of 1 lemon or lime

Turn the processor on and drizzle olive oil in until the pesto is the consistency you want!
