A twist of traditional pesto with cilantro and Thai basil, but just as easy and delicious!.
1 C. cilantro leaves
1/2 C. thai basil leaves
1 hot thai pepper, seeded
1 large clove of garlic
1/2 C. olive oil
In a food processor, combine first four ingredients until finely minced. Add oil slowly until incorporated. Taste and season with salt.
Combine with pasta, add to chicken, put on a sandwich with fresh mozzarella ….the options are limitless.
I like to add about 1/8 C. chopped peanuts on top of prepared pasta to add texture and protein, but that’s optional, especially if you are nut-free. You can also use rice noodles for gluten-free. Enjoy!
