Week Ten: Nici's Coriander & Cashew Pesto, Plus, Put Your Brain Power To The Test!

If you have an abundance of coriander in your garden at the moment, Nici has the perfect recipe to put it to good use!

Coriander & Cashew Pesto 

Who's a fan of fresh coriander? I think the world can be divided into those you love this pungent herb and those who can't stand it. 

There's really no in between. I'm a lover of coriander as to me it lends such a mysterious and fresh flavour to so many dishes;  curries, slaws, in fritters, stir fries and more. There's an abundance of it right now as it grows better in the cooler months than in summer when it tends to bolt.

Try this tasty coriander and cashew pesto - I'm dolloping it on and in everything right now but especially on corn fritters. YUM! 


  • A few big handfuls of fresh coriander, stalks and all 

  • ½ cup roasted cashews

  • Decent squeeze of lemon or lime juice

  • ¼ cup oil, I use grapseed but any neutrally flavoured oil will do 

  • Pinch chilli flakes

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes (optional)

  • Water to add to get the right consistency


Blend all of the above in a blender or food processor until it comes together. Add enough water, as needed, to get a sloppy paste that is well-blended. 

Serve with sweetcorn fritters, or with rice, on a curry, as a dressing for roasted vegetables or whatever you please!
