Recipe Notes

*Recipes like this are a great place to use up parsley stems since they'll be blended.  They contain the same flavor, so if you've got some lying around, feel free to use a combination of parsley stems and leaves.

**If you're a garlic lover, try this recipe with only one clove before adding more.  Since there's no significant source of fat to balance out the garlic, too much garlic will definitely have a spicy aftertaste.
