Cilantro Pesto (coriander pesto)
INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 4-6
  • Preparation Time: 5 min
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (or orange juice)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups of packed fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp hot pepper, minced (or 1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes)

  • 1 tsp sugar (or other sweetener of choice)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
