Recipe: Asian Pesto


I was watching Ina Garten make pesto on tv and had a brainwave… 

This was so good I almost ate it all straight out of the jar! Good with fish, good as a vege dip, good on its own. 

Asian Pesto

1″ knob of ginger, peeled

3 cloves garlic

1 bunch cilantro

1 cup roasted unsalted cashew nuts

2 limes, zest and juice

2 tbsp light soy

3 tbsp good quality olive oil


In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients except the olive oil until they form a paste. Then, while still pulsing, drizzle in the olive oil. Voila!

Served tonight with baked red snapper and cauliflower rice.
