Ingredients

1 tightly packed cup packed Fresh coriander, washed and dried

¼ cup Toasted nuts – Any toasted or fresh nuts will do, We use almonds for the health benefits. If using whole nuts chop roughly before adding into the blender

1 teaspoon Fresh lemon juice

  3. Add lemon juice and stir in
  4. Transfer to a bottle container with a lid and keep in the fridge. Keeps for a couple of weeks provided there is a thin layer of olive oil to stop oxidation on the top layer
