Nuttin? Better Sauce

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Salt to taste


Add red pepper, bread crumbs, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, and pecans to food processor. Pulse once or twice just to blend ingredients. Add canola oil and blend ingredients to form smooth consistency. Add salt to taste. Sauce can be stored in refrigerator, covered, for up to one week. Makes 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups.
