Everyone loves pesto - try this version which adds cayenne pepper and white wine vinegar for a little more kick! Serve over your favourite pasta.
Used different ingredients. read previous reviews so subbed lemon juice for vinegar. Had pine nuts after making basil pesto, so toasted them & used them instead. Also, used about a 1/4t crushed red chilli instead of cayenne...I don't like really hot, just a zing. Since I was washing the coriander as I was adding it to the blender, putting all the liquids in to begin w/, it got a little watery & mixed up very nicely. Let it sit in fridge overnite & used on pasta w/ some feta...yum!!! - 08 Oct 2008
Something else. I used this recipe to create a quick and easy starter I had at a party a few years ago. Spread one package of cream cheese on a plate and then spread it with the pesto. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers. I used more coriander than called for in this recipe - almost double, I think. Also added some lime juice which gave a great, bright burst of flavour. Don't really remember how much, but maybe 1-2 T? - 08 Oct 2008
Used different ingredients. This was great! To adjust to personal taste: I use only 2 cloves of garlic, which was plenty. 5 tbsp. of parmesan, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1 tbps. lemon juice and a handful of Brazil nuts. Brilliant pesto!...Next time, I’d double recipe so I can freeze some in an ice-cube tray for quick meals. Thank you for sharing and for some many helpful reviews. - 08 Oct 2008
