Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday! If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below!
I bought a bunch of cilantro this week for a new recipe that I thought I've have posted here today. But things have been pretty crazy here at the Frugal Follies household, so I think the new recipe will have to wait until next week!
Instead, I'm posting my recipe for cilantro pesto, which is a cheaper yet delicious substitute for basil pesto. I'll definitely be making it soon with the leftover cilantro from my recipe!
Here's the pesto recipe:
1 bunch cilantro
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, peeled
pinch of salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Remove leaves from the cilantro stems. In a food processor place the cilantro leaves and the other ingredients. Process until smooth.
