Cilantro-Jalapeno Swirl

This came from Crescent Dragonwagon’s enormous Passionate Vegetarian.  Michael produced this to go with its friend Roasted Red Pepper Soup (with a Cilantro-Jalepeno Swirl.)  That was only okay.  This is worth holding on to, and it’s only a matter of buzzing it in the food processor.  I used the leftovers of this in red beans and polenta.  In both cases it was a fine addition.  It would also be good mixed with yogurt to make a simple raita.

(Michael actually made this with parsley instead of cilantro because there was no organic cilantro available at WFM this week.  Either way, it’s a fine condiment.)

1 c. loosely packed cilantro leaves
1/2 t. salt
3 fresh jalapeno chilies, stems, seeds, and ribs removed (leave some if you’re a hot fiend)
Juice of 1 lemon
2-3 T. vegetable stock

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.  Buzz away.
