Like i have said in my previous post on Cilantro Pesto, i came to like cilantro and use lots of it, adding it to lots of dishes especially soups. When you have more than you need of fresh cilantro and before they die on you, besides making Cilantro Pesto, the next best option is to turn it into a infused oil,. It is not quite the real thing, it is less pungent but it is there in your refrigerator, to put on almost anything - noodles, rice etc.
250 ml (1 cup) vegetable oil or olive oil
2 bunches of fresh Cilantro
.Drop the cilantro into boiling water for a few seconds and refresh in ice water.
.Squeeze the blanched cilantro dry.
.In a high speed blender/food processor, blend the oil and cilantro together for 30 seconds, strain it through a cheesecloth.
