This super easy chimichurri sauce is a great, homemade condiment to put on all your low carb and keto foods, especially eggs and meats!
I recently fell in love with chimichurri sauce. It’s super easy to make and very versatile. I love it on eggs, steak, chicken… you name it. I have been trying a ton of different recipes for chimichurri, most of which claim they are traditional recipes from Argentina. Cool, cool. This one is not authentic, but it is delicious.
I also tried some recipes that are non-traditional, and I tried one with roasted garlic ( I love roasted garlic!) Additionally, I have tried white wine vinegar versus red wine vinegar. More salt versus less salt. Overall, I think I have found the right recipe that makes my taste buds happy.
The best thing about chimichurri sauce, other than the flavor explosion, is that it’s made with parsley! If you follow this blog, you know that parsley is practically a superfood and is ridiculously good for you. Read more on parsley HERE.
This easy chimichurri sauce comes together very quickly if you have a mini food processor or an immersion blender with the food processor attachment. Personally, I have an aversion to my mini food processor because I don’t like cleaning it, so I use my trusty chef’s knife and cutting board and chop away. I enjoy it because I love the smell of the freshly chopped herbs!
This easy chimichurri sauce stores nicely in the refrigerator for up to a week. Just make sure that you bring it back to room temperature before serving. I store the chimichurri sauce in a mason jar with a plastic lid which keeps it wonderfully.
