His birthday was the end of June, but we weren`t home for his birhtday we were in Virginia. So I sent out invitations for the pizza party.
I always used to have his party at home, but this is a lot less work and it actually cost a bit less I believe. (And more relaxing too.)
Today I`d like to share a little information on my next herb on the list.
Todays herb of choice is Cilantro.
Annie says: A little of this bright green sauce goes a long way. Spicy and piquant, it's delicious served with grilled vegetables or on Mexican Pizza. (page 180 from this same book). For fresh chile flavor, add a green jalapeno or serrano chile and omit the cayenne. Walnuts are a fine substitution for the pine nuts.
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
1 scallion, white and green parts, coarsely chopped
1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
1 Tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
1.5 teaspoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1 lightly packed cup cilantro sprigs with short stems
1 lightly packed cup parsley sprigs, large stems removed
salt and cayenne pepper
Combine everything but the salt and cayenne in a food processor or blender. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt and a few pinches cayenne pepper; puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt and cayenne.
Have a great day!
And As Always
Keep It Clean!
