Chimichurri Sauce

Herbaceous and Fresh

πŸ’™ This is one of my favorite go to sauces. Everybody makes their Chimichurri a little differently. I prefer mine to have more of a Cilantro to Italian Parsley ratio. The flavor develops after a little time in the fridge. Although it is still super tasty freshly made.

πŸ’™Please read the notes at the bottom before preparing.

Makes 1 cup

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

β€’ 2 Cups Cilantro tops, washed and patted dry

β€’ 1 Cup Italian Parsley tops, washed and dried

β€’ 2 Garlic Medium Sized Cloves, minced

β€’ 1 Tbl. + 1 tsp. Red Wine Vinegar

β€’ 1 Tbl. + 1 tsp. Fresh Lime, juiced

β€’ 1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes

β€’ 1/2 tsp. Salt

β€’ Pepper, a few cranks

β€’ 1/4 Cup Olive Oil or Avocado Oil

Instructions:

1) Place everything except Oil into *Food Processor or Blender. Pulse a few times then slowly add oil on the pulse setting. Stopping on occasion to clear the sides. Taste and see if it needs more salt and pepper.

2.) Pour into a glass jar, cover and place in the fridge. Take it out of the fridge a 1/2 hour before serving.

Notes:

πŸ’™ Please note: * The Food Processor makes it more the traditional chunky style, and the blender makes it smoother. It’s up to you how you prefer your sauce. I usually make it in the food processor and pulse it. If you make it in the blender just don’t over blend it.

πŸ’™ Keeps in the fridge for a couple of weeks in a covered jar.

πŸ’™ Tastes good on Steak, Chicken, Fish, and Tofu.

πŸ’™ You can mix it with Sour Cream or Mayo and Lime for a twist in your Bowls, Burritos and Tacos.

πŸ’™ Makes a tasty marinade for Meats and Tofu, if you add a couple spoonfuls of Chimichurri to some Avocado Oil and either Lemon or Lime. (Discard sauce after marinating.)

πŸ’™ You can substitute regular Parsley for the Italian Parsley, but it really tastes the best with the Italian Parsley.

πŸ’™ Macros are based on the whole 1 cup recipe so depending how much you use will determine your macros. I use KetoDiet App and try to use exact products or the closest I can find.
