- Prep Time: 10
- Total Time: 10
- Yield: 1 ½ cups
- Category: Sauce / Condiment
- Method: Blended
- Cuisine: North African
- 1 cup (packed) Italian parsley or cilantro ( a combination is nice)
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- ½ to 1 whole jalapeño, sliced
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika, more to taste
- 1 teaspoon coriander (or cumin)
- ½ teaspoon salt, more to taste
- 1 cup plain yogurt (or silken tofu, or sour cream- see notes )
- Place all ingredients except yogurt in a food processor. Pulse repeatedly until finely chopped. Add yogurt, pulse again until combined, but not too smooth. Taste, adjust salt and heat.
- You can also blend all ingredients in a blender but note that yogurt will get a little runny. It will firm up some in the fridge. It still tastes good, but with a thinner consistency.
- You can swap out sour cream or silken tofu for the yogurt.
- If making the vegan version with silken tofu- blend it in a blender and add 2 tablespoons olive oil, increase the salt to taste and add squeeze of lemon or lime or splash of apple cider vinegar.
This will keep a week in the fridge.
