Green Seasoning

I was introduced to “green seasoning” by one of the baddest cooks in Israel, Sis Zuriel House of Deacon Malachiyah. Her food is amazing!! On one of her visits, she gave a group of sisters a cooking demonstration featuring some of her delicious dishes. I was honored to be present. Tip after tip, she equipped us with ways to elevate our cooking skills. One of these tips was her green seasoning.

Green seasoning is a blended mixture of vegetables, herbs, and peppers used as a marinade or cooking ingredient that adds freshness and flavor to dishes. This is now a kitchen staple in my lord’s house, and is super simple to make. This is what I used in my most recent batch:


  • 1 bunch of parsley

  • 1 bunch or cilantro

  • 1 bunch of thyme

  • 1 bunch of culantro (found in NK stores or Intl market)

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 yellow/orange bell pepper

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 poblano pepper

  • 1 red onion

  • 1 yellow onion

  • 1 bunch scallions

  • 12 cloves of garlic

  • 3 stalks of celery

  • 1 jalapeno

  • 1 habanero

  • Handful of small sweet peppers

  • Splash of water (directly into blender per batch)


  • Separate all ingredients into two batches unless you have a blender large enough to hold everything.
  • Add one batch to a blender and blend until all combined.
  • Add the second batch and do the same.
  • Store in the refrigerator or freezer depending on how quickly you will use it, and enjoy! Can last in the refrigerator up to 1 month, and I’ve used from my freezer up to a year.

There are slight variations of this seasoning from tribe to tribe and household to household, but the core recipe is onions, garlic, peppers, herbs, and celery. Below is a picture collage from Sis Zuriel! Look at all those flavors! Something to inspire your kitchen indeed!
