Cilantro Pesto on Toast [Vegan Mofo]
Day 10 of Vegan MoFo! Woohoo!
As promised, I have a theme of sorts for the next few days: green. Specifically, green veggies & herbs from my CSA this year.
Today? Cilantro pesto. I was skeptical at first when making cilantro pesto, but I had a cilantro overload this summer and had to figure out how to consume it all. It's delicious and works just as well as basil. My pesto includes walnuts (unsalted), lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and sea salt.
I decided that instead of just pasta or vegetables, I'd try it on toast. I loved it, like an interesting garlic bread. It would have been even better on some crusty french bread, but it was a great snack all the same.
The cilantro was from the CSA. Here's a close look at the GREEN!
