Sesame Pesto
10 mins (prep 10)
8 ingredients
0.5 servings
I've been going through old magazines lately to clean out the garage and found this recipe in the May 1996 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. The recipes states that parsley can be substituted for half the amount of cilantro leaves. So, that is what I did. Try this pesto on fish, poultry, vegetables and freshly cooked pasta! The sesame seeds do not need to be toasted unless you want but I think it gives the nuts depth.
