Fresh Basil or Cilantro Pesto
Yield: 5 minutes
Prep time: About 1-1/2 cups
Blend all ingredients thoroughly in food processor or blender. The basil pesto is excellent tossed with hot pasta, plus grilled vegetables and tofu, or stir a bit into a pot of vegetable soup. The cilantro pesto is delicious with curried stir fried vegetables, or added to black bean, corn and vegetable salads, with a bit of spicy tomato salsa. Either pesto is excellent as a sandwich spread or dip.
