Backyard "Chimichurri"

August 26, 2015


Author Notes: With sincere apologies to bonafide chimichurri, I've co-opted the name to describe the fragrant dipping sauce I love to whip up when we're planning to bbq (tofu and veggies, in my case). There really isn't a lot of exact measuring involved. Much of it can be done by taste.clcatto

Directions

  1. Throw all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. If you have time, you can roast the pumpkin seeds in the oven for more flavor. Add more lime juice and/or olive oil if you prefer a thinner consistency
  2. Serve over rice, meat, tofu, veggies. The sky's the limit
