Ingredients for Cashewnut & Coriander Pesto
2 cups fresh coriander leaves, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
cup (45g) toasted cashew nuts
1/3 cup (35g) finely grated parmesan
cup (125ml) light olive or peanut oil, plus extra

Place the coriander, garlic, cashew nuts and parmesan in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped. (Alternatively, place ingredients in a mortar and pound with a pestle until well combined).
With the motor running, gradually add the oil in a thin, steady stream until well combined and a smooth paste forms. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer to an airtight container and pour over a little extra oil to cover the pesto surface (this will prevent the basil from oxidizing and turning black).
Preparation time: 10mins
Freezing time: 3hours
