  • 2 bunches cilantro
  • 2 bunch fresh mint leaves ~ about half the volume of the cilantro
  • 1 chopped jalapeno
  • Juice of ½ large lime
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • Blitz ingredients together in a food processor until cilantro is finely chopped.

Pesto will darken/brown if exposed to air. If your container has a lot of head space, press some plastic wrap against the pesto before securing the lid.
