Spice Sauce PD Premium Recipe2018-07-03
A protective sauce that will heat up everything you eat this summer, it’s called Zhug in Hebrew and Sahawig in Yemeni Arabic. For easier pronunciation the name has evolved to Schug (and often pronounced schwoog). Still hard for me to say so I named the PD version Spice Sauce. I’m still perfecting my pronunciation of this exciting condiment that I can’t live without to keep food history alive. This popular condiment found at falafel stands and served with hummus in Israel has made its way all around the world. Although it is prepared with similar ingredients, it varies in color from bright green to brownish red depending on the region the person preparing it is from. In my opinion it is better than Africa’s harissa sauce that is roasted in flavor like Protective Diet’s delicious King Sauce. Protective Diet’s version is brownish in color and traditionally called Skhugchum. According to folklore, The Jews of Yemen believed the chili pepper in this sauce assisted the body to withstand illness, improve vitality and aid digestion. I suggest putting it on anything you want to make exciting, but it is best served with everything. See the recipe serving suggestions for a plant-based trip around the world with links to my favorite Protective Diet Middle Eastern recipes and many American classics I enjoy this flavorful sauce with.
