Chimichurri sauce

I haven’t tried to make one, but it looks fairly simple. Here is a simple recipe:


  • 1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine the chopped parsley, minced garlic, and chopped oregano in a bowl.
  2. Stir in the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Mix well.
  3. Add the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste.
  4. Let the chimichurri sauce sit for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.
  5. You can adjust the seasoning to taste before serving.

Chimichurri sauce is great for serving with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or as a marinade. Enjoy!

Peri-Peri Cashew nuts

I don’t really like nuts; however, if I have to choose, cashew nuts are my absolute favourite, especially the peri ones. I like the ones from Woolies. 

Sides to your meals 

  • The good old Green Salad
  • Steamed veg with a little veg spice (steamed, not boiled, of course.) 
  • Couscous salad is easy to make, and so filling. I add cranberries in mine. 
  • Wild rice salad with peppers, mango, cucumber, salt and pepper 
  • Cabbage stir fry with some carrots and peppers
  • Broccoli and cauliflower rice with spicey rice spice over it. Of course, you have to steam the broc and cauli first.
