Cilantro Lime Pesto

Cilantro Lime Pesto (all measurements are approximate)

  • 2 bunches of cilantro - washed and big stems removed
  • juice of 2 limes
  • about 1/3 cup of walnuts
  • about 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • fresh ground sea salt & fresh ground pepper
  • olive oil

  1. pulse together walnuts, sunflower seeds, garlic, lime juice in food processor, scraping down as needed
  2. add cilantro and continue to pulse until everything is all smooshed together and well combined
  3. with food processor running pour in olive oil until desired consistency
I have added chopped fresh tomatoes, (tofutti) cream cheese and (tofutti) sour cream and used it on pasta (YUM) and tonight I added probably equal parts mayo and pesto with juice of a lime as salad dressing. We had the pesto mixed in to steamed rice. We have also used it as dip with tortilla chips.
