If you’ve watched the video below then you know that I don’t love to give recipes for Green Seasoning.
Because it’s a vibe.
You gotta listen to the ingredients and let them speak to you.
Green seasoning is a blend of herbs, onions, garlic, pepper, salt, spices, a lil oil AND sour oranges or limes or vinegar.
What’s the amount? How much of each should you use? What’s the proportion of this to that? *shrugs
It’s whatever your taste buds tell you.
But because I know some of you really came for a recipe, I won’t leave you hanging. But I will leave you with a warning . . . a lot really depends on the flavor of your individual ingredients. Flavor is affected based on whether it’s fresh from the soil or coming pre-chopped from a refrigerated produce section in the grocery store. All of this affects flavor and each batch is going to vary….but ONE THING IS FOR CERTAIN, your meals will sing praises with every bite once you start adding this to your cooking! Use my suggestion below aka “recipe” as a guide.
How to Make Green Seasoning
This is a guide and makes about 1-2 cups worth of seasoning. Also this recipe is different than what you see in the video….because like I said, I like to vibe while I cook. But I use this recipe to reference ingredients.
- 1–2 medium yellow onion, rough chopped
- 1 shallot, halved
- 1 bunch scallion / green onion
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper
- 1/2 green bell pepper
- 6–8 garlic cloves
- 2 TB fresh thyme leaves
- 10 culandro leaves OR ⅔ cup Cilantro Leaves
- 3/4 cup parsley, not packed tight
- 1/2 cup watercress, not packed tight
- 1/4 – 1/2 scotch bonnet
- 1/3 cup sour orange or lime juice
- salt, enough to heighten the taste of flavors
- 1tsp All Purpose Latin Seasoning
- 1 tsp All Purpose Caribbean Seasoning
- 6 cloves
- olive oil
- Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until it comes together.
- While blending, stream in enough olive oil to make cohesive and smooth. This shouldn’t amount to more than about 1/8 cup. You’ll have to eyeball this one and trust your self. You got this! Your taste buds are THE GUIDE and they work better than the strict measurements of a recipe. Have fun, taste it out, add along as you go.
