Total Time: 10

Yield: 1-1/4 cups

This recipe yields more paste than you'll need for 6 servings of shakshuka. Use the extra sauce to kick up grilled chicken or fish or as a sandwich condiment stirred into mayonnaise, or enjoy it simply by itself.

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces Hungarian wax peppers (or 4 ounces fresh jalapeno peppers), stemmed, seeded, and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves and stems
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Combine first 8 ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
