Put the herbs, lemon zest and juice and the ginger into a food processor. Add a little flaxseed oil. Blend until smooth. Add enough oil to make a thick pouring consistency.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
