Misfit Garden Crackin' Coriander Pesto

  • 1 bunch fresh coriander leaves (& stalks!)
  • 1 clove garlic - crushed
  • 60g any nut of your choice (This works with cashews, pinenuts, peanuts, almonds, walnuts.... you name it!)
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese finely grated (for vegan, use nutritional yeast)
  • 1 Lemon (juice & zest)
  • A good glug of olive oil
  • Optional chilli
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Method

  1. In a food processor blitz the parmesan and garlic, and set aside.
  2. Then place the coriander and nuts in the processor and pulse until just chopped. (Make sure you add all the coriander. Stalks & cleaned roots! Thats where all the flavour is)
  3. Add in the parmesan, lemon juice & zest and olive oil (and optional chilli if you're feeling adventurous!) until combined.
  4. Serve & enjoy! Perfect with pasta, pizza or as a side with your favourite BBQ'd meat/veggie. 

 

For Storage

Place in a jar and drizzle with a little olive oil to seal it from oxidising and prevent colour change. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

    (You can add any green leaves you like for this recipe! Add some fresh spinach or kale to make it more 'kid-friendly')
