Originating as a Yemeni dish, but a common pesto throughout the region, Zhoug uses either cilantro or flowering coriander (cilantro that has moved to the flowering stage) as the base for a zesty and earthy green puree. It has a bit of heat, but we keep our version on the “family-friendly” side. Zhoug makes a wonderful accompaniment to grilled meats or vegetables. Try some in a salad dressing, or mix it into rice with lentils and the healthy fat of your choice.
