RECIPE | Chimichurri Sauce – Turn bland into bloody delicious

10th January 2018

chimichurri sauce

I love that sauce you get at popular high-end chain and Argentinean steak restaurant Gaucho Grill. Nearly as much as I love the overkill of cowhide. The green sauce – hot, lots of parsley and plenty of chillies in it. I slap it liberally all over my rare Ribeye, dunk my bread in it and pour it over my sweet potato fries whenever I dine at Gaucho. I bloody love the stuff.

Apparently it’s called chimichurri. The Argentinean equivalent of ketchup.

I’ve never really thought about making the stuff myself. Until last weekend. I picked up a couple of Ribeye steaks from my local butcher – the world-famous Weegmanns in Otley, and decided to give the stuff a go. Spice up my steak a little. Not that it needed it.




Fast-forward five days and I’ve slapped this delicious green stuff on everything – roast chicken, steamed cod, baked salmon and steak. I’ve dipped carrot sticks into it and poured it over my salad.

I promise you chimichurri turns any boring, healthy, overly green plate of January-diet-hell into a taste sensation.

It keeps – just keep adding a little extra olive oil and you can make a huge bowl full of the stuff and keep it in your fridge. Slap it on everything. Honestly, it’s the future.

No carbs, no sugar, no wine, no chocolate – just healthy stuff whizzed together. It takes 5 minutes.


What you need: (1 meal – approx 4 people)
  • A small bunch of parsley
  • A smaller bunch of fresh oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper

Blitz the lot together in a blender and bung it in the fridge – tastes better cold. Serve with…. absolutely anything!


I slapped it on some cod fillets tonight and baked them in the oven in tin foil for 15 minutes then served with spinach, avocado and cucumber. And whacked more of my chimichurri on the greens too.

Might try it with ice-cream next…

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | Locksley Distillery Gin School – If you love gin you MUST to do this!

“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.

Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
