Quick Delicious Carrot Top Chimichurri
I am not always a huge sauce person- I love fresh, delicious food, without a lot of additives. (I'm respectfully ignoring the fact I could literally top everything I eat in cheese... we'll let that topping slide in this soliloquy...)
I DO love really tasty, earthy, and tart sauce full of flavor. And for me? Chimichurri totally fits the bill. Chimichurri is so delicious- a little heat, a little bitter, some earthy notes - and it goes great with all sorts of meats.
Chimichurri is one of my favorite sauces- and it is even better with a big helping of fresh carrot tops inside! If you're at a loss at what to do with carrot tops (which are totally edible and delicious) like I often am, this carrot top chimichurri is a great recipe! You can also make a big batch and freeze or can it!
And of course, if you need a great side- these carrots are perfection!
