Chili Oil


Having a decent chili oil in the kitchen comes very handy sometimes. It revives most meals.. just imagine adding this oil to a plain pasta with Garlic and basil, or sauteing veggies with it or even drizzling it over labnah. yumm! excellent with meals and as dipping oil as well.


  1. Olive oil
  2. Fresh red chili peppers
  3. Garlic
  4. A pinch of Parsley
  5. A pinch of Coarse salt
  6. A pinch of Black Pepper
  7. A pinch of Paprika


There are two ways to make this oil. You can either heat the oil and add crushed chili peppers along with everything else I mentioned then pour it in the bottle, or soak chili and spices with olive oil for 2 weeks without any type of heat.

This time, I used fresh chili, whole garlic and chopped garlic, sea salt, dried parsley, and paprika. it smells great! it’s the first time I ever use fresh chili peppers, so I don’t really know the shelf life of it. but I’ll let you know if it gets spoiled or not.

Can’t wait to use it :)

One very important tip: when dealing with fresh chili, USE GLOVES. The oil and juice gets stuck in your hands and burn them.

Bon Appetit!
