Cilantro and Pistachios Pesto - Boredom Breaker!




Home-Made Pesto Sauce:

Eating a block of cheese right away from the fridge used to be a bliss of spinster-hood (Am not under any surveillance, duh) !! Not being obligated to feed anyone but myself made it a very easy choice to settle down with whatever lies in the pantry or have it delivered! When I was studying...I befriended bunch of take-out center boys to deliver my lunch promptly during exam time!!

Sometimes, cooking for myself is not only a time-consuming process but also a thankless chore. Even if I make an effort to bring something healthy my concentration is completely out of control! The biggest challenge is to cook for one! However, rather than snacking on the junk food all the time, it is better to play with ingredients! It could be a boredom breaker and who knows, eventually one will learn something (edible or not-so-edible) as a result!!! See, I started with single burner electric stove...my skills have improved more than mere whipping Maggie noodles! So, there you go...get ready for cooking!

Ingredients:

Cilantro leaves alone 1 cup
Pistachios nuts 1 fistful
Garlic 2 cloves
Salt
Lemon juice few spoons
Salt as per taste
Olive oil few spoons.

Method:

Blend all the above mentioned ingredients together. Use this puree as a sauce for your pasta, spaghetti etc. Enjoy home-made delicacy.
