Right now, I have plenty of cilantro. It grows like weeds in my garden. I love cilantro. In honor of this prolific herb, I created a fresh pesto recipe. This recipe is dairy-free, and the lime juice keeps it fresh long after other pesto sauces would expire. See some recommendations for gluten-free pasta here.
2 C fresh cilantro leaves from your garden
1/3 C Brazil nuts or walnuts
1 clove garlic
1/3 C extra-virgin olive oil
1 squirt lime juice
1/4-1/2 tsp salt
ground white pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until evenly minced, scraping down the sides as you go. Taste for balance of flavors and adjust. Serve tossed with hot pasta. It's that easy!
