I hear it’s St. Patty’s Day today.
I’m thinking that calls for something green. I’ve got a zesty chimichurri sauce in mind.
What is chimichurri sauce, you ask? Well, it’s only one of the most insanely flavorful things you’ll ever eat (thank you to my dear friend Scott for this recipe!). It’s an all-purpose condiment you can eat on nearly anything-eggs, potatoes, mushrooms, steak…you get the point.
No, it’s not Irish, but it’s very green. I hope it will do.
Ingredients: (makes about 1 cup)
1 bunch parsley (de-stemmed and rough chopped)
1 bunch cilantro (de-stemmed and rough chopped)
3 to 4 good sized cloves of garlic (rough chopped)
1 lemon (juice and zest)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (divided into thirds)
Directions: Toss parsley, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice and zest, and one third of the olive oil into a food processor and blend until it starts to smooth out a bit.
Once blended, add another third of the olive oil and red pepper flakes. Pulse until the mixture gets a bit smoother.
Finish off the last bit of olive oil and pulse for several minutes until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. Add more lemon juice or oil if needed to reach the desired consistency. All said and done, I probably spent 5 minutes blending the mix to the consistency I wanted.
And perfect for brunch (or lunch, or dinner, or anytime).
Nothing left to see here, folks.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
