  • Cut the vegetables into smaller pieces.
  • Using a food processor, first grind the cloves, bouillon cubes, garlic, thymey and celery. If you overcrowd the machine with everything at one time, the smaller things will not grind properly.
  • Now add the parsley, onions, scallions, shallots and bell pepper.
  • Process until very fine.
  • Add vinegar, oil and lime juice, if using.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator.



It is not necessary to remove the thyme leaves if they are on the tender branches. Only remove them if they are on the woody stalks.
Yield: 16 oz.
