Chimichurri Sauce | I Spy Plum Pie

Recipe: Chimichurri Sauce

I’ve always enjoyed chimichurri sauce when I’ve been served it at restaurants, so I thought it was about time I made some for myself. Turns out not only is it bursting with flavour it’s also incredibly easy to make. It’s been on high rotation in my kitchen recently and I can’t see myself stopping making it any time soon!

Recipe: Mango, Peanut & Lime Sauce

Sometimes I find myself getting in a bit of a rut with sauces and marinades, with the same thing ending up on meal after meal. This happened again recently so I decided it was time to try something new and after seeing mangos on special at my local fruit & vegetable shop I knew exactly what I wanted to make!

Recipe: Ginger & Orange Quinoa Greens

This bright green dish is amazingly simple but packs a flavour punch thanks to the ginger & orange dressing. The tangy orange works so well with the grated ginger, with a tiny bit of sweetness from the honey – perfect! This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing, but the quinoa just drinks it up so I really like it, but use less if you prefer!

Recipe: Roasted Broccoli and Chickpea Salad

My love for chickpeas knows no bounds, but I hadn’t roasted them for a while so when I needed a quick and easy salad the combination of roasted chickpeas and broccoli seemed too good to pass up. Nice and simple but packing a flavour punch thanks to the tangy dressing, this salad makes the perfect side dish at a BBQ or part of a lunchtime spread with friends and is equally delicious warm or cold. I think that’s called a winning combination!

Recipe: Miso Sesame Greens

This recipe is all about the dressing – a tangy, salty, delicious concoction that works equally well on a salad as it does a stir-fry, or as I have used it here to dress up some simple steamed greens. The best part is it can be whipped up in mere minutes so you can have dinner on the table in a flash on those nights where slaving over the stove just doesn’t seem appealing. Perfect!
