Yesssss, yum. You can use garlic scapes, too, if you grow garlic....


I particularly enjoyed the parsley pesto on spaghetti.


Google "ping gai chicken" for a terrific pesto-ish way to use the cilantro (sans nuts but preferably plus roots, if your bunches come with roots). It's good on chicken, pork, and fish.


I like a pesto of half cilantro half parsley with lemon juice and zest on soba noodles. Seriously tasty. I usually make some spicy grilled chicken to put on top.


My favorite recipe we tried last week is right in this vein! How fun.


Divide whole wheat pitas into top and bottom. Make a pesto (does it count as such without tahini?) of cilantro, chickpeas, and a touch of oil and lime juice. Spread across pita bottoms; layer with roasted red peppers (home-roasted is best) and add pita hats. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or so.

Delicious. I think you'd enjoy!
