This recipe is consistently one of the most viewed on our recipe blog. And it's easy to see why - with only 4 ingredients and tons of health properties, what's not to love?

  • Ingredients: 4 cloves garlic
    2 bunches cilantro
    1- 2 tsp lemon or lime juice
    1/2 cup light-flavored olive oil
    (optional) salt + pepper to taste
  • Instructions:

    In a clean blender, add the oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend to a smooth paste.

    Put blender on “chop” cycle and add the washed cilantro bunches. Use the entire plant, stalk and all.

    Once the paste has reached your preferred consistency, adjust to taste with lemon (or lime). Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.

    If you prefer a spicy pesto, add chili or habanero peppers.

    Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

  • Serving suggestions: We like to use this as a dipping sauce for our lamb big bloke sandwiches and for our egg 'n bacon brunch sandwiches. It's also a great alternative to tomato-based pizza sauces (just remember that it does have a strong taste so you don't need to spread as much on the pizza base as you would a 'regular' tomato sauce).
