Cilantro/Purslane Pesto to try


    1 cup cilantro
    1 cup purslane leaves and small stems
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup cashew nuts
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon vinegar
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or minced spicy peppers
    salt and pepper to taste

Try adding the olive oil slowly, until you get the desired texture. It may not need the full amount, or you can substitute with a bit of water to keep the cost down.
