Fresh Coriander Pesto

Cilantro Hemp Seed Pesto

My cilantro is flowering and some is becoming cilantro seed also known as coriander. Today I made vegan cilantro pesto with cilantro flowers, some fresh cilantro and fresh coriander.  I highly recommend it. The fresh coriander seed has a light and sweeter flavor than cilantro.

Here are 2 links for a delicious organic, vegan, raw, gluten-free, easy to make cilantro pesto, made with almonds and sunflower seeds, and is from my cookbook, Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook: http://www.lesliecerier.com/recipes/eating-local-and-making-cilantro-pesto/

And Cilantro Hemp Seed Pesto is one that I developed for Nutiva with their organic nutritious and delicious hemp seeds and hemp oil. Hemp is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, delicious and is also a complete protein.

Enjoy and feel free to use the pesto as a spread, dip or on pasta for a great side dish or main course. Have a great organic feast!
