Recipe from the website Thyme and Love

Cilantro, it is always sad that it comes in right after all the tomatoes have been mowed.  It simply is too hot to grow cilantro here in the summer time.  But one of my favorite “pestos” is made with Cilantro and Nutritional Yeast.  You can use this on pasta, or as a dip for crudite of raw radishes and broccoli, or a topping for roasted veg.  

3 packed cups of Cilantro

1 cup Pine Nuts, extra for garnishing

1 clove Garlic

Juice of 1 Lemon

2 TB Nutritional Yeast

3/4 tsp Sea Salt, or to taste

1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Add the cilantro, pine nuts, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt to a high speed blender.  Drizzle in the olive oil a little at a time.  Blend until completely smooth.  Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
