This Clean Eating Vegan Chimichurri Sauce is a simple but flavorful sauce made with clean ingredients that can be used for so many vegan dishes.
You can make this recipe in less than 5 minutes with a Vitamix and after picking up some fresh herbs like organic parsley and organic cilantro. I particularly love it because of the tangy flavor the apple cider vinegar gives it.
While chimichurri is typically used as a marinade or topping on a meat dish, I like to use it as a dressing on a salad, as a dip (especially with these grain-free chips!), roasted veggies and even tossed with shirataki noodles.
The recipe is enough for a single serving, which I usually make just for myself, but if you need it for more than one person, just double or triple the recipe.
And, you can easily make it lectin-free by omitting the organic red pepper flakes and you'll still get a little "pepper" flavor from the organic ground black pepper.
This healthy recipe is made with real, whole food ingredients and is raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free, soy-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly.
