Green seasoning is a popular ingredient used in many Caribbean stews, curries and roasted meat dishes. It consists of a variety of herbs including culantro (chadon beni), thyme, green onions, garlic and Cuban oregano (Mexican mint).
For this green seasoning recipe, I made use of the herbs available at my local supermarket.
Check out my Trinidadian pelau where I use green seasoning.
