Use this local version of pesto in pasta, on bread, or even as a marinade for meat and seafood. A tip: Get young  malunggay leaves because older ones tend to be bitter.

Serves

2 cups moringa (malunggay) leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups basil leaves, cleaned
1/4 cup cashew nuts
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

 

1  Prepare all ingredients in individual containers. In a frying pan, saute malunggay leaves in olive oil until wilted; cool.

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse continuously until you reach the consistency of pesto.
