  • 4 celery stalks if using celery with leaves (Chinese Celery), use 6 full stems instead.
  • 2 cups chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cups chopped parsley
  • 2 inches ginger root peeled and chopped
  • 2 bulbs garlic - peeled
  • 1 leek substitute with 4 green onions
  • 2 cups oil See Note 1
  1. Thoroughly wash the celery. Chop and put in a blender or food processor. Wash the leek and chop and add to the blender.

  2. Add in the parsley, basil, leek garlic, ginger and oil then blend everything into a paste.

  3. Pour the mixture into a jar with a tight-fitting lid and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Recipe Notes

1. Blending with oil helps the Green Seasoning to last longer in the fridge as opposed to blending with water.

2. You could add a variety of other ingredients to your green seasoning. Love onions? Add some in! Love thyme? Add some in! If you like heat then add a couple of habaneros or scotch bonnet peppers or chilis for some heat. I would personally just add 1 habanero because that way it is hot but the heat is not overpowering.

3. Use 1 cup of this green marinade for 5 pounds of chicken or beef.

4. Nutritional information is per cup of this marinade.
