  2. Hold Twister lid and with other hand, press "Speed 4" for 10-15 seconds. Turn the Twister lid counter-clockwise during blending.


If the recipe is doubled, it can be made in the FourSide and WildSide+ jars. It may take several more steps of pulsing and scraping the sides with a rubber scraper to get the desired consistency.

    This is surprisingly very good. I added 1/2 tsp. dried basil & freshly ground black pepper. Yum!

    Would love to try this recipe, but we don’t have a Twister jar, and I guess I am not "$120" interested in it…..

    I love when I find something I want and I have the ingredients already. This will be made tonight! Thanks blendtec!
