Packed with zesty, bright flavor and a distinct kick from two kinds of fresh chiles, Green Seasoning is a staple in the kitchens of Trinidad and Tobago. Often used as the base for dishes like Pelau, Green Seasoning is also prized as a finishing sauce to give recipes a final kick.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine lime zest, lime juice, and vinegar in a food processor. Toss together onion, scallions, garlic, chiles, chives, cilantro, broadleaf thyme (if using), and thyme in a large bowl until combine. Add half of the onion mixture to food processor and pulse to create a chunky purée, about 10 to 12 pulses. Add remaining onion mixture and process, scraping down the sides as needed, until Green Seasoning is smooth, about 1 minute.
