Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro Pesto is now the most important ingredient in my Pesto Bean Soup. Tomas would always add cilantro to his pesto bean soup, so that gave me the idea to add cilantro pesto to the soup instead of basil pesto. It turned out to be the best thing to do to that soup because it taste even better. Also Tomas is extremely satisfied about the change to the soup. So now the soup will have cilantro pesto in it for now on.

I found the recipe for cilantro pesto from all recipes, but instead of following the recipe that someone posted on there I followed what one of the reviewers did instead. Well I hope you enjoy the cilantro pesto as much as we did.

Cilantro Pesto
1 bunch fresh cilantro
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
6 Tbsp olive oil

Place all ingredients into food processor or blender and blend.

PS: If you add this to the Pesto Bean soup, then add half of the pesto and then save the rest for the next time.
