Cook's Hideout: Quinoa and Roasted Vegetables with Chimichurri Sauce

Quinoa and Roasted Vegetables with Chimichurri Sauce

After making the chimichurri sauce, I was wondering how to use it. In Argentina, it is served with grilled meat. After searching a little bit, here are more uses for it in vegetarian dishes - ideas from here:
  • As a sandwich spread by mixing with mayo.
  • As pasta sauce -- just toss with hot pasta.
  • Stir in scrambled eggs.
  • Stir into mashed potatoes.
  • Use as dressing for chopped veggie salad.

Here's how I used the chimichurri sauce. I served it with some roasted vegetables and quinoa. Recipe idea is from Vegetarian Times magazine. Original recipe had roasted sweet potatoes, but I used grilled veggies instead.

  • Grill vegetables until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Alternately they can be roasted in the oven to.
  • In the meantime, bring quinoa and 2cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 15~20 minutes or until tender. Season with salt.
  • To serve, divide the quinoa and vegetables among 4 bowls. Top each with chimichuri and garnish with sliced avocado.
