So yeah, I’ve been working on Oliver’s Nest through these last sunny days of late Summer, but this post is about a little recipe I made up. It’s probably been created a thousand times over by others, but I like it so much I thought I’d share it here in case it’s a new idea for you. It’s simple and flexible, and yummy!
So, first you need either a bottled chimichurri sauce or make your own. Glop about 1 tablespoon into about 1 cup of either sour cream or plain yogurt of whatever brand or style you like (I prefer a thicker, organic yogurt myself). If you like garlic, add some finely minced garlic to the sauce. I like garlic so I add about a teaspoon to it. That’s step one.
Next, cook some kind of meat or meat substitute without anything other than maybe some salt and pepper. The last time I made this I used skinless chicken thighs, baked without seasoning. If you like, cook up some type of vegetable that you think will go with the meat/tofu/fish/whatever. That’s step two.
Step three is to pour the sauce you mixed up over the meat and veggie/s, and salt and pepper it if you like. You can first cut up the meat, or leave it in larger pieces. I like to cut it up so the sauce gets all over (like I said, it’s yummy).
Eat. This is great hot or cold, and can be really low-fat if you use low-fat yogurt. It tastes amazing on all the vegetables I’ve tried, and seems to get better after a day or two. Warning: cats apparently love this too. You WILL be watched.
Hope everyone is well this fine Fall day!
