Does it keep?
(peeled and crushed)
(seeds and stem removed // use less if not into spicy food)
(thick bottom stems cut off)
(plus more to taste)
(or other sweetener of choice)
(optional // or sub more water)
(to thin // ~3 Tbsp or 45 ml as original recipe is written)
Place garlic and pepper in a food processor along with the cilantro, parsley, avocado, salt, lime juice, maple syrup, and oil (optional).
Process/mix until smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Thin with water until a semi-thick (but pourable) sauce is formed.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more serrano pepper for heat, garlic for spice/zing, avocado for creaminess, salt for saltiness, lime for acidity, or maple syrup for sweetness.
Transfer to a serving container and enjoy immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 4-5 days. Be sure to seal tightly or the sauce will lose its vibrant green color.
