chimichurri from the greenwich market cookbook

The lovely Emily from Kitchen Press gave me a copy of her new publication – The Greenwich Market Cookbook. A beautiful cookbook with both illustrations and photographs. One of my favourite meals ever is a good steak and in my opinion steak is even better with a couple of nice little condiments and salads, so I was keen to try out a recipe for chimichurri. This chimichurri – a recipe from Buenos Aires CafĂ© is somewhere between a salad and erm…chimichurri! Because everything’s done by hand it has such a rustic look and taste about it, and I’ve already eaten a giant spoonful on its own. So delicious! Fresh and zingy from the herbs, vinegar and garlic. Yes, there’s a lot of garlic but that’s what makes this chimichurri so good – so don’t be tempted to skimp! Perfect as a topping to fresh bread or with steak and even fish. This is the book for fab recipes from one of London's best markets. 

1 small onion
1 sweet red pepper
1 tomato, peeled
1 bulb of garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley 
1 teaspoon finely chopped oregano 
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper 

Finely chop the onion, garlic and tomato and put into a bowl.

Finely chop the red pepper and herbs and add to the bowl and follow with the olive oil, vinegar and seasoning and mix really well.

There you have it. Time to eat. Super easy!
