Ingredients : 
- 400 g (14 oz) vegan penne

- 55 g (2 oz) coriander (cilantro) leaves, plus extra, chopped, to serve
- 125 g (4½ oz) unsalted peanuts, toasted, plus extra chopped, to serve
- 150 ml (5 fl oz) vegetable oil

Preparation Method :
1) Cook the pasta in boiling salted water following the packet directions. Meanwhile, blitz the coriander leaves, peanuts, vegetable oil, garlic, chilli and lime juice to a smooth paste in a blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper, adding more lime juice if needed.
