I thought I’d share a few recipes with you today to maybe get us talking about food and cooking again? I love those boxes from Hello, Fresh, but dang if our schedules can get synced! Every week that I have time to cook and want a box, they have recipes that feature things I don’t eat, like broccoli and salmon. Yuuuuuuuuuuuck. When they have cool looking recipes, I am traveling or busy and can’t order the box.
I do, however, keep an eye on their recipes. It’s always an option to print them out and make them at home, which is what I’m going to do with my latest craving, and that’s for something with chimichurri sauce.
If you have never eaten chimichurri sauce, you don’t know what you are missing! It is so flavorful, and super easy to make. It’s a South American condiment with a parsley or cilantro base. Some recipes call for both parsley and cilantro. From there, recipes vary regarding ingredients. I’ve seen recipes that include garlic, chili peppers, cumin and shallots. Then you need a liquid (usually vinegar) and an oil to make it all blend together. You just put the ingredients in a food processor and whirl them into this amazing sauce that is bursting with a fresh taste and vibrancy you just don’t get anywhere else.

You can use chimichurri on steak, chicken, and even on vegetarian dishes if you’re not a meat fan. Here are two recipes from Hello, Fresh that are particularly appealing and that I’ll be making in the next few days.
