Zhug is a hot sauce from Yemen that is also very popular in Israel.  It is sometimes called oriental pesto, although it is closer to adjika in spiciness. Zhug is the perfect way to keep greens fresh and add spice to any dish. It is well kept in the fridge and is always ready to refresh any dish.

I always have this sauce in my fridge. I add it to borscht and tahini, serve it in stews or on eggs, steak, or chops.

I highly recommend it!

Bon appetit!
