Easy Chermoula Sauce

Food writer and cooking teacher Nadine Abensur introduced us to this superpunchy pestolike sauce from North Africa in her book The Cranks Bible: A Timeless Collection of Vegetarian Recipes. Chermoula is delicious with grilled fish and grilled or steamed vegetables, a secret flavor weapon for making healthy stuff taste great.

Game plan: Chermoula is best right out of the food processor, but it will keep for up to 1 week in the fridge.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine everything in a food processor and process for 30 seconds on high.
  2. 2Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then process for 30 seconds more. Serve at once, or cover tightly and store in the fridge.
