Have you ever bought those little pesto or dip tubs from the supermarket? I have 2 huge issues with them –
- Price! They are pretty darn expensive for such a tiny amount of produce.
- Most of them contain preservative 202 which is pretty nasty
Try this Thai pesto I’ve created, it will make a much larger portion, it’s totally fresh, you can alter the ingredients to agree to your tastebuds and it’s got no nasty additives!
You’ll need –
Food processer, knife, small grater and chopping board
- 1 bunch of coriander
- 2 kefir lime leaves
- 1 ½ cups raw and unsalted cashew nuts (you could try substituting with walnuts for a slightly different flavour)
- ¼ cup olive oil
- chili (I use 1 seeded haberno chili. If you are not a chili fan, you could add a small amount of sweet chili sauce)
- 2cm grated ginger
- juice of one lemon
- salt to taste
Add all ingredients to food processor and give it a whiz until combined.
