Getting Saucy: Chimichurri

Chimichurri is a green herb sauce commonly found in Argentina. While it’s typically made with olive oil, here we’ve made it with avocado oil for that extra kick of antioxidants. It’s a sauce that goes great with grilled meats, like steaks, but we love to surprise and recommend giving it a try over tofu!




Chimichurri Sauce (Vegan)

1 tablespoon yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5 tablespoons avocado oil

Combine all ingredients except oil in a blender. Mix on medium speed for 30 seconds. While blender is running, slowly pour in oil.


We love our sauces here at Green Chef. The best thing is that we send them to you prepped so you can start cooking right away. Check out our full recipe for Cuban Chimichurri Tofu (Vegan).

    Can this recipe be adjusted to make the creamy chimichurri sauce that came with the Cuban Chicken Wraps? I love it!

      Yes, Katie, it can be! While this version is creamy on its own, you can add some sour cream to make it even smoother!
