Cilantro Pesto over Zucchini Noodles

  • Author: Get Inspired Everyday!
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: makes 2 cups 1x


  • 2 bunches of cilantro, (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup cashews, lightly roasted
  • 2 avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 2 Teaspoons sea salt
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced, measuring 1 Tablespoon
  • 1 recipe of Zucchini Noodles
  • Freshly chopped tomatoes, about 3 cups


  1. Coarsely chop the cilantro, leaving most of the stems behind.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on a low speed using the tamper to keep the mixture moving. It will take a couple of minutes before the pesto becomes fairly smooth.
  3. If you’re using a food processor: process all ingredients, scraping down the sides as necessary until the pesto is mostly smooth.
  4. Serve immediately as desired or with a recipe of Zucchini Noodles and freshly chopped tomatoes.


To keep this recipe totally raw, skip roasting the cashews.
