What is Chimichurri Sauce
Chimichurri is made from fresh parsley, cilantro and a few other key ingredients. It originates from Argentina and has become a favorite around the world in over the years.
What does chimichurri sauce taste like?
It’s a fresh zesty, zingy with a tad bit of heat. It really is an overall flavor explosion. Even I am not a huge fan of cilantro (I’m one of those people where it tastes like dirt to me) and I actually LOVE chimichurri sauce.
How to Make Chimichurri Sauce
It really is perhaps one of the reasons I love this sauce so much. Like our easy taco sauce recipe it takes just about 10 minutes from start to finish.
For the Chimichurri you’ll need either a food processor or blender. A immersion blender can work well also.
You’ll need: Fresh parsley, fresh cilantro, shallot, garlic, lemon, vinegar, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and olive oil
Note: This recipe cannot be use with dried parsley or cilantro. It will not be enjoyable at all. So start early by planting this in the garden this spring to you can make chimichurri allllllll summer fresh from the garden.
Speaking of summer flavors, check out this low carb BBQ sauce from That’s Low Carb. Yum!
What to use chimichurri sauce on
Traditional favorites around the world is using chimichurri on steaks. We personally love it over our cauliflower steaks and really any roasted vegetable you can think of this is divine.
Even add it to our black bean burgers or use our chickpea patties and it is divine.
So really any roasted vegetable, tacos or ‘meat’ this chimichurri sauce takes it to the next level.
Can you freeze chimichurri sauce
Yes you can! Perhaps one of the huge reasons I love sauces like this. It’s made with natural and freezable friendly ingredients.
You can even freeze these in ice cube trays (affiliate link) like these and have dethaw on an individual basis.
Fresh herbs and oils like this can stay frozen in an airtight container up to 1 year. Even more reason why you should plant all the delicious ingredients needed this spring. Whip together all the ingredients that you haven’t used up at the end of the year and enjoy fresh chimichurri sauce alllllll year.
I know we are geniuses. We are going to start writing more tips like the above for the future though as we eat less meat in the world I also think it’s important we think about ways we can be more sustainable and watch our food waste output.
But now all you have to do is take 10 minutes to whip this together and slather it all over our cauliflower roasted steaks and we are in business.
