What I love most about chimichurri is it's versatility. It's epic served over grilled veggies & meats + can do double duty as a marinade for just about anything!

While I know that authentic chimichurri uses parsley, red wine vinegar and chili, I thought this recipe pairs perfectly with the Tex Mex inspired Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.

Chimichurri Sauce &/or Marinade

Makes approx 1 cup

What you'll need:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 large garlic clove

1/2 bunch washed & dried cilantro, stems are okay! (sub parsley if you don't like cilantro)

Zest & juice of 1 juicy lime (about 2 tbsp)

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp honey


Add 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 large garlic clove, 1/2 bunch of cilantro, the zest and juice of 1 lime, 1/4 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp kosher salt and 1 tsp honey to a small blender or food processor. Pulse until evenly chopped, but not smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning. If it's too sour/punchy add another tbsp of olive oil + salt &/or honey. If it's taste too much like oil, add a bit more lime juice or some red wine vinegar + salt.

To serve: serve with tacos, over grilled meats, roasted or grilled veggies, tofu or stuffed sweet potatoes!

Enjoy, my friends!
