  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Place the cilantro leaves and stems and the olive oil in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture forms a puree. Transfer the puree to a medium bowl, and let stand at least 3 hours or overnight.

  2. Set a fine sieve over a small bowl, and pass the puree through the sieve. Discard any remaining solids. Store the puree in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 2 weeks.
