i'm trying to make tallarin verde, a peruvian pesto which includes spinach in addition to basil and is creamier than traditional pesto, but i can't find a recipe anywhere on google.
anyone know how to make it?
I too have been on this quest to find an authentic Tallarin Verde recipe.
All I've found so far is a link to someone who has 'reengineered' the sauce: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/... Look at the bottom of the page for the recipe.
EDIT - I found this explanation of the origins of pesto in Argentina and Peru: http://originalrecipes.com/node/183477 Great fusion - Genova supplies the sauce, China supplies the noodles.
EDIT - after reviewing a few more sites there is some implication that the (pesto) sauce could be made with huacatay (Peruvian black mint). No recipes found yet with this ingredient.
