A Zhougy egg salad with toast

I’m really sorry if I am going overboard with my enthusiasm for Zhoug (or Schug) across social media. Yes, this Yemeni condiment made with cilantro, peppers and spices now comes ready made at Trader Joe’s and my universe has been transformed with possibilities. So this morning, we had an easy but superbly yummy Zhougy egg salad with toast and you might want to give it a try!
