About this vegetable and Chimichurri Recipe:
We love making this roasted vegetable dish just to have an excuse to eat chimichurri sauce. If you like chimichurri sauce, you definitely need to try this.
If you are not too familiar with chimichurri, it is a delicious sauce from South America made with parsley, garlic, lemon, vinegar, and a few spices. It is garlicky and a little tart and it makes the best sauce to pour over vegetables and meat.
This chimichurri recipe that I use for the vegetables comes from a friend who taught me how to make an authentic chimichurri and it couldn't be easier.
If you are looking for what to serve with this roasted vegetables with chimichurri sauce, it can be served on its own as a vegetarian chimichurri meal or it makes a great addition to serve alongside classic steak chimichurri. After all, if you are already making the chimichurri sauce, making the steak to go along with it is very easy.
Ingredients You Will Need
- Mixed Vegetables ( I like to use potatoes, green and red peppers and red onion.)
- Cuban chimichurri Sauce (fresh Italian parsley, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, white vinegar.)
Notes about the ingredients:
When making the chimichurri sauce for these vegetables, make sure to follow the recipe exactly. There are very few steps to making the sauce but each one is very important.
These roasted vegetables with chimichurri use potatoes, peppers, and onion. These are some of the more classic veggies used to serve alongside steak chimichurri.
When preparing your vegetables, make sure they are all cut to around the same size so they will cook evenly.
You do not have to stick to this list of vegetables if you prefer something else. I do think the potatoes are one veggie that you should keep but feel free to add or take away based on your own preference.
Some great vegetable ideas to add would be asparagus, green beans (like I do with my roasted green beans with rojo chimichurri), eggplant (just remove as much moisture as possible before roasting), and cauliflower.
If you want to make this meal super easy, you can make the chimichurri sauce the day before. When you are ready to use it, remove it from the fridge about 30 minutes before you need it to bring it to room temperature.
- Can I use chimichurri as a marinade? Chimichurri is best served over top of your cooked vegetables and meat. It is meant to add freshness and brightness to cooked food.
- How do I make sure my roasted vegetables come out crisp? The key to making delicious crispy roasted vegetables is to start with a high oven temperature. You also want to make sure you are not using too many vegetables with a high moisture content (like zucchini and eggplant.)
- Is chimichurri spicy? No. Even though it does have red pepper flakes in it, this Argentinian sauce is not spicy at all.
- What to do with leftover chimichurri? If you have extra chimichurri that you do not use on your vegetables, you can store it in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week. It makes a great dip for raw vegetables or just about anything!
