Green Herb Sauce
Green herb sauce doesn't sound very appetizing, but neither does zchoug, which is what this is actually called. Your choice.
This is a really good way to use up leftover herbs before they go bad. I am sure there are countless possible variations on this, but here is a version I know tastes good. It is wonderful paired with hummus, scooped onto boiled eggs, added to an omelet, as a spread on sandwiches, or mixed into mayonnaise. I read somewhere once that herb consumption is one of the top ten predictors of good health. I have no idea if that's true or not, but I eat this and feel healthy anyway. Maybe a little virtuous too.
1 cup cilantro
1 cup parsley
a few cloves of garlic
1 spicy green pepper or jalapeño
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Blend everything in a food processor. Season to taste.
