Cilantro Pesto      

Great on pasta or fish and helps prevent heavy metal toxicity, especially Mercury.

 1 clove garlic

½ cup almonds, cashews, or other nuts or seeds

1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves

2 Tablespoons FRESH lemon juice

6 Tablespoons cold pressed olive oil

 

Put cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until cilantro is finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process into a lumpy paste. (You may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender.)  You can change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil and lemon juice, but you need to keep the ratio at 3:1 of oil to juice.  (ie: 7TBS of oil to 2 and 1/3 TBS of lemon juice.  Or 9 TBS oil with 3 TBS lemon… etc).  It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.

 

Eat 2 tsp daily with a few rice crackers, Nut Thins, or spelt bread
