Coriander Pesto

CORIANDER PESTOCoriander-pesto-l

Makes 1 ½ cups

2 cups firmly packed fresh coriander leaves
170ml (2/3 cup) extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, quartered
1/3 cup brazil nuts or any raw nuts
1/3 sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

Fresh coriander is an excellent blood purifier;  2 teaspoons of coriander pesto every day for 3-4 weeks is known to remove heavy metals from the body.  Heavy metals include mercury, lead and aluminium.  This pesto also goes well as a dollop on poached eggs, as a dressing for salad or as a dip.
