Thai pesto Thai pesto2

Have you ever bought those little pesto or dip tubs from the supermarket? I have 2 huge issues with them –

  1. Price! They are pretty darn expensive for such a tiny amount of produce.
  2. Most of them contain preservative 202 which is pretty nasty

Try this Thai pesto I’ve created, it will make a much larger portion, it’s totally fresh, you can alter the ingredients to agree to your tastebuds and it’s got no nasty additives!

You’ll need –

Food processer, knife, small grater and chopping board

Ingredients –

  • 1 bunch of coriander
  • 2 kefir lime leaves
  • 1 ½ cups raw and unsalted cashew nuts (you could try substituting with walnuts for a slightly different flavour)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • chili (I use 1 seeded haberno chili. If you are not a chili fan, you could add a small amount of sweet chili sauce)
  • 2cm grated ginger
  • juice of one lemon
  • salt to taste

Add all ingredients to food processor and give it a whiz until combined.
