Vegan Chile Garlic Puree Recipe
Building flavor is especially important when you're only working with plants.
A little bit of stovetop heat and some blender action easily turn a simple set of ingredients into something wonderful with very little effort.
1 1/2 cups water
1 jalapeno, chunked
1 serrano, chunked
1 habanero, deseeded and chunked
2 guajillo, destemmed and deseeded
10 cloves garlic, chunked
1/4 cup chick peas, drained and rinsed
2 tbls olive oil
1 tbl spicy mustard
1 tbl salt
1 tsp black pepper
Add all the ingredients to a medium sauce pot. Cover. Bring to a simmer and allow to continue simmering for 15 minutes.
Remove and discard the guajillo.
Transfer to a blender and process until smooth.
If you have a powerful blender or want to simmer the mixture longer you can keep the guajillo in the mixture when you puree it.
Either way, it's an easy to make, plant based puree that's packed with flavor.
