Coriander Pesto

As the rain continues to fall after 3 non-stop days, my fingers are itching to get back into the garden. And the weather says it is going to continue like this until the weekend.
I have however managed to keep myself busy in the kitchen and one thing I cannot get enough of at the moment is coriander pesto. So easy to make and delicious with everything (well almost)

I have not been able to grow coriander in my garden yet as it keeps bolting before it has even four leaves. Luckily our veggie market had some on special and I managed to pick up 2 bunches for R5.

This recipe is so quick and easy. All you need are the ingredients and a food processor. I just got one this week and so far I am loving it, it has so many uses.

Throw the following ingredients into the food processor:
A medium bunch of coriander
About 2 handfuls of cashew nuts
About 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
A pinch of salt
And a chopped up chilli (or in my case chilli paste)

 Wizz it while adding olive oil until you get the consistency you like

My new best friend in the kitchen, my Kenwood Multi-Pro

 Bottle and refrigerate

Use it in pasta, on crackers, in sandwiches or salads. Sometimes I find myself just eating it off the spoon, it’s that good.
It also makes a yummy dip by mixing 1 part pesto with 3 parts plain yogurt.
