Sometimes a simple recipe can go a long way. For example, this cilantro pesto recipe is simply delicious on a cracker, piece of celery or toast, or as a chicken topping or spread. My favorite use is as a salad topping. Wow your guests with this easy, delicious and healthy recipe the next time you entertain!
I prefer to soak my almonds or walnuts starting a day ahead for almonds and a few hours for walnuts. This allows for better digestion and a tender consistency.
1 Cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 clove of garlic
1/2 Cup of almonds or walnuts
Flaxseed or olive oil
Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Use salt to taste. Add 1 Tablespoon of oil at a time until desired consistency.
You can add this to your fish dish, pasta or use as a spread or dip.
