Servings: 4 (makes about 1/2 cup)
Calories: 135kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 cup(s) fresh cilantro (1 large handful)
  • 1 cup(s) fresh parsley (1 large handful)
  • 1/4 cup(s) red onion (about 1/4 of an onion), chopped*
  • 1/4 cup(s) olive oil (substitute aquafaba for oil-free)
  • 2 clove(s) garlic minced*
  • 2 tablespoon(s) lime juice (1 lime)
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Instructions
  • Add all of the ingredients to a small blender, food processor, or use an immersion blender. Blend everything together, stopping to scrape the sides as needed. I prefer a sauce with lots of visible texture, but if you prefer a smoother sauce, feel free to blend to the desired consistency. 
Notes
*If you don't want to chop the onion and garlic by hand, just add them to the blender first and pulse a few times until chopped. Then add all of the remaining ingredients.
