Description

A Peruvian style sauce that uses basic ingredients but packs an amazing flavor that enhances pretty much anything you put it on.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Green Onions, Trimmed, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • ½ cups Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • ½ cups Flat-leaf Italian Parsley, Chopped
  • 3 whole Roma Tomatoes, Seeded & Diced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
  • 1 whole Habanero Pepper, Seeded, Chopped
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced

Preparation

Begin by adding the green onions, sugar, garlic, half of the cilantro, half of the parsley, half of the tomatoes, salt, pepper, vinegar, and habanero pepper into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until everything is finely blended.

Into a mixing bowl, add the remaining tomatoes, the remaining parsley and cilantro and juice of the lime. Pour in the mixture from the food processor, and stir well to combine everything.

What you end up with is what is called Aji. It is much like a sofrito and can be used in so many dishes. Smell it, then taste it, and you will see. The possibilities are endless. Soups, rice, stews, heck, even a salad. It’s fresh, it’s bright, and it is nothing short of amazing. Give this one shot. It will store for a few weeks in the fridge, but I am guessing it will not last that long. Hope you enjoy.
