  • 1 packed cup flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp fresh basil
  • 2 medium mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 7 medium garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp freshly pressed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil divided


  • Finely chop each herb, especially the rosemary. Then chop the onion and garlic.
  • Place the finely chops herbs, garlic, and onion into a small food processor, then add the freshly pressed lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and 1/4 cup avocado oil. Pulse it a few times until the mixture becomes finer.
  • Transfer the herb mixture into a small bowl and whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup avocado oil. Serve with warm bread. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.



How to store bread dipping oil?

Since this dipping oil has fresh herbs and garlic, store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week in an airtight jar like a mason jar.

Can I substitute the fresh herbs for dried ones?

Unfortunately, no. This dip is meant to have maximum herb flavor to complement bread, so swapping the main ingredients for the dried version will cause the dipping oil to lose a ton of flavor.
