The Kitchen Garden's Cilantro Pesto

image from Tim Wilcox and Caroline Pam are naturals in the kitchen.  The have come to live what they love, by establishing an all natural family farm in Sunderland, The Kitchen Garden.  This is a sensational twist on that salacious sauce we all love.

"This is so easy to make and jazzes up burritos, sandwiches, stir fries, you name it. It goes particularly well with grilled eggplant, chicken or fish, steamed potatoes, and beans.

  • 2 cups cilantro, stemmed
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp ginger
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Throw all the ingredients except the oil in the blender and puree while drizzling in the oil.

This pesto will store in the fridge for a few weeks, and it also freezes well. It has a leg up on basil pesto in that it doesn’t oxidize and turn black when exposed to air."

You will find The Kitchen Garden at the Springfield Farmer's Market each Tuesday afternoon.
