Rosemary is my favorite herb! 🙂 But if you prefer cilantro, try Texas Pesto instead.
2 cups fresh basil leaves, tightly packed
1/3 cup fresh rosemary leaves, tightly packed
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped pecans (more if you use large pieces instead)
1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried thyme (or just add some of that fresh, too! Hah.)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until pasty. (Start with 1/4 cup olive oil, and add more if it feels too thick.)
Serve on bread, mixed into scrambled eggs, with rice, on chicken skewers, or anywhere savory herbs are welcome.
