Chimichurri Sauce, a Recipe for Herbs for Health

Updated: 5 days ago

chimichurri recipe

Chimichurri is a zesty sauce originating from Argentina featuring parsley, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, vinegar and olive oil. Chimichurri is commonly served with grilled meats - adding a burst of flavour and freshness.


Not only fresh and delicious, the herbs in chimichurri are packed with health promoting polyphenols that counter inflammation and oxidative stress. So if you want to bring some balance to your meal, be bold with the chimichurri.


For a straight up classic...



And for some greater detail on the culinary 'science' involved, plus some alternatives...


 

As part of a nutritionally rich, whole health lifestyle, at The Whole Health Practice we advocate enjoying herbs (and spices) as a regular part of one’s diet. While some herbs (and their polyphenols) have shown positive results for specific health outcomes, enjoy a variety of herbs that work in synergy to promote maximum health. And taste!


Stay Herby,
