Tips
If you don't use all the Cilantro you buy in your recipe, you can freeze it for the next one.  To freeze, wash and drain whole sprigs, then pat dry with paper towels. Place a few sprigs at a time into small plastic freezer bags and freeze. Another way to freeze is chop the cilantro and freeze in ice cubes.

Recipe

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Parsley, Lemon, and Walnut Pesto

Ingredients
 4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch wedges
    7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley
    1/4 teaspoon chopped garlic (about 1 small clove)
    1/2 cup raw walnuts, toasted
    Grated zest of 1 lemon, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Directions
  
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, turning once, until golden and tender, 23 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly.

    Meanwhile, pulse parsley, garlic, walnuts, zest, and lemon juice in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Drizzle remaining 6 tablespoons oil and process until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

    Top roasted sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons pesto.
