Cilantro Pesto Recipe

Ingredients

 3-4 cups of fresh cilantro (give or take)
 2 garlic cloves quartered
 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
 2/3 cup walnuts
 Salt
 Pepper
 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
 Juice of half a lemon

Directions

1

Wash the cilantro thoroughly – it’s best grown in sandy conditions, so be sure to rinse all the dirt and sand off well.

2

Place cilantro, garlic, Parmesan cheese, walnuts, some salt, and some pepper into a food processor. Pulse several times until everything is finely chopped (about 7 or so pulses).

3

Turn the food processor on and drizzle in the olive oil

4

Stop and taste the pesto. Adjust salt and pepper to your taste and add lemon juice.
