1/2 small serrano or jalapeño pepper
1 clove garlic
1 cup fresh basil
4 Tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 c mint, chopped
flax seed oil or olive oil to taste
Process all ingredients except the mint and oil until smooth.
Divide into 4 portions, serve in chilled bowls for an extra treat, top with chopped mint, and drizzle with oil.
