Green Sauce

I used to make a version of this sauce with sesame oil and tahini. It was delicious, but heavy. Now I love it without the sesame oil, and you could make this flavor – packed version even lower in fat by leaving out the tahini (see Tip). You will still have a really good sauce to use on pasta, steamed vegetables, or many other dishes you’ll find in this book.

1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.

If you leave out the tahini, increase the cilantro to 1 cup.
