Z’houg (Yemenite Green Chili Paste)


Wow, what a kick! One taste and I was immediately addicted. All I could think was, “What can I put this on? I want to put it on everything!”

What caused this reaction? Z’houg, a Yemenite green chili paste I made with jalapeno peppers and parsley from my garden combined with garlic and a bunch of spices, including black peppercorns one of my daughter’s friends brought back from India.

I waited an hour and then put some on my egg bagel for lunch. I will say it again, “wow!”

I can’t wait to see what else I can put it on!

I may need to make some Yemenite flatbread 🙂
