How to Make Mint Pesto Sandwiches

  • Clean and wash the mint and coriander leaves.
  • Pluck the leaves and discard the stems for the mint.
  • Toast almonds in a pan for about 2 minutes (optional).
  • Toss everything in a food processor and pulse it a couple of times to get a coarse mix, don't grind it into a paste.
  • Do a taste test and season with salt and pepper.
  • Use as a spread for pizza or sandwiches or for making pasta.
  • For the sandwich:
  • Spread a tsp or two of pesto on a slice of bread.
  • Top it with a couple of slices of cucumber, tomato and cheese. Cover with another slice of bread.
  • Heat a spoon of ghee or butter in a pan and toast the sandwich on both sides for half a minute each or till the bread turns golden.
  • You can grill the sandwich instead of this stovetop method too.
