Cilantro Pesto with Pumpkin Seeds

Enhance the flavor of chicken or fish with this great tasting pesto that can be prepared in a matter of minutes. Add it to fish tacos with a few avocado slices for a taste treat. (Taken from page 687 of the 2nd edition of the World's Healthiest Foods book.)

Prep and Cook Time: 10 minutes



  1. Chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add olive oil a little at a time at end. You want the pesto to be blended yet not smooth. It is best with a little texture. Serve at room temperature. Do not heat it.
