Cilantro Pesto



The Italian/Brazilian pesto!



Ingredients for Cilantro Pesto:
1/2 cup of salted cashews
1 cup of cilantro leafs
1/2 cup coconut milk
4 Tbsp of smoked tabasco sauce
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of olive oil or palm tree oil

Recipe for Cilantro Pesto:
Mix all the ingredients in the food processor until it gets the pesto texture.  You can also do it by hand using a pestle & mortar.  A blender or immersion blender could work as well.

Other Suggestions for Cilantro Pesto:
If you want to make a sauce with this pesto, just double the quantity of the coconut cream.

**This cilantro pesto goes very well with grilled fish, chicken, shrimps and even in a bruschetta.  
You can jar the pesto or freeze. Once you open the jar, make sure that you have enough olive oil covering the leafs or the leafs will be brown.
