  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup cilantro or parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 avocado coarsely chopped
  • 1 small lime (juice only)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. With a food processor running, drop the garlic through the feed tube to mince it. 

  2. Stop the processor and add cilantro/parsley, olive oil, avocado, lime juice (you can squeeze it right into the food processor), salt, and pepper.

  3. Process until smooth.

Recipe Notes

If you have a large lime instead of a smaller one, only use the juice from half of it.
