This is a great basic pesto recipe. This same recipe can be used to make a great basil or parsley pesto, just replace the cilantro with whatever you have on hand.
- 1 1/2 to 2 Cups Cilantro
- 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- 1/2 Cup Almonds
- 1/2 tsp Jalepeno pepper (or few shakes red pepper flakes)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 Cup Olive oil
- Pulse everything together except the oil in the food processor.
- Add in the oil and continue processing until smooth.
Note: (If making in a less-than-top-notch blender, chop all the ingredients pretty fine first before blending together.)
