“This recipe is from week one of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country in the world, starting with Abkhazia (a very small country near Georgia). Adjika is a kind of condiment popular in several countries in that part of the world. I had a hard time finding an actual recipe for Abkhazian Adjika, so here is my best guess, based on a few vague references I found online. Adjika can be used to flavor chicken or other dishes, or you could be creative and spread it on bread or sandwiches.”
1/2 cup adjika

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 red jalapenos (I'm sure the Abkhazians use some other kind of spicy red pepper. Use more if you prefer a spicier co)
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 14 cup olive oil (give or take)
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Put all dry ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse, adding olive oil, until the adjika is a pasty consistency.
