    • 1 large white onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 4 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
    • 3 cups packed cilantro sprigs, plus more for serving (from 1 large bunch)
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds, crushed
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
