Knock ‘Em Dead Garlic Spread (aka green dragon breath)

My friend Shauna K. brought this amazing spread with some fresh garden tomatoes to a dinner. I couldn’t get enough. Shauna is one of the healthiest eaters I know… so anything from her is fair game. In her own words:

Its a lot like pesto but not so expensive because you can use any weeds from your backyard if you want instead of pinenuts.

I named this recipe because it really puts you in a position to have awesome garlic breath after its eaten!

Knock ‘Em Dead Garlic Spread

1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp – 1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil (fresh is even better)
few sprigs parsley
3-4 stalks green onion
(throw in a couple wildcrafted weeds from your backyard – optional)
8 cloves peeled garlic

Blend in blender or cuisinart. Pour over anything compatible (veggies, rice, pasta, etc). Enjoy the dragon breath!

I dare you!
