Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley packed
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves packed
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 3/4 cup garlic-infused oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small frying pan, toast the cumin and paprika over low heat until fragrant (usually about 30 seconds).

  2. Place toasted seasoning and all other ingredients except the garlic-infused oil and black pepper into a blender or food processor. Pulse the blender/food processor a few times. Then, blend ingredients until smooth while slowly drizzling in the ¾ cup garlic-infused oil. Taste charmoula and add black pepper to taste. Can be used immediately as a sauce or marinate but can taste even better after being refrigerated overnight. This sauce can be made up to two days ahead of time.

Tip of the Day

Gluten is a protein that is found in the grains wheat, rye, and barley. People living with celiac disease cannot eat gluten at all, even in the tiniest amounts, as it destroys their intestinal wall. This damage can prevent people from absorbing nutrients into their bodies. Other people may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity in which the body responds poorly to gluten. This can lead to gaps in the intestinal lining that allow larger food molecules and organisms like bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. Keep in mind a gluten-free diet is not necessarily a “weight loss” or “healthy” diet but can be therapeutic if indicated. There are many ways to test for celiac and gluten sensitivities; talk with Sally today for more information.
