Have you made some healthy changes in the New Year? Fantastic!
Occasionally when we start a healthier eating plan, we can find ourselves getting into a rut with our food choices.
What's the solution? Find ways to beat the boredom with some new recipes!
Looking for a tasty way to jazz up that otherwise boring grilled chicken breast or steamed veggies?
Chimichurri is your answer. This sauce is a blending of herbs, onion, vinegar, and oil, to form a pureed spread. It's fantastic on everything. Check it out in my Chimichurri Butter Bean Salad too!
Makes ~ 1 cup
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 cup fresh flat leaf parsley leaves
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup vegetable oil (olive oil will solidify when refrigerated, which is fine- just FYI)
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small food processor. Chop until a course puree is formed. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to use. Will keep in refrigerator for ~ 1 week in a covered container.
