Jazzing Up Some Of Your Wholesale Chimichurri

Buying chimichurri in large, wholesale quantities is generally cheaper than buying it in small, individual containers. And if your container of wholesale chimichurri is larger than you need, that's nothing to worry about. You can simply jazz some of it up and use it in different, unique ways. Here are a few such methods and ideas to try.

Cook some of the chimichurri.

The herbs in chimichurri are generally raw, which is what gives it that fresh, herbaceous flavor. However, you can cook some of the chimichurri, which will give it a different, though still wonderful, flavor. The simplest way to do this is to pour a cup or two of the sauce into a saucepan. Bring it to a gentle simmer over medium heat and remove it from the heat as soon as it begins simmering. This way, the herbs will not be over-cooked. You will, however, notice that they turn a darker green after you've simmered them. Let the chimichurri cool, and then you can use it however you'd like. It's good spooned over chicken or fish or when tossed with pasta or rice.

Blend some of the chimichurri.

Another option is to put some of the chimichurri in a blender or food processor and process it to combine its flavors even further. It will smooth out and become a consistent, green paste. Surprisingly, it tastes different after you process it in this way. The herbs do not separate from the oil nearly as readily, which gives it a different mouthfeel. Chimichurri that has been blended is great as a salad dressing, and you can also spread it onto your sandwiches. Try making a panini with some blended chimichurri inside.

Mix it with mayonnaise.

Maybe you find the flavor of the chimichurri just a little too strong for your palate. If this is the case, then you may want to use up some of your wholesale chimichurri by mixing it with mayonnaise. Simply combine equal parts chimichurri and mayonnaise in a bowl and mix the ingredients together. You can add a pinch or two of sugar for a unique twist; it helps balance out some of the more acidic and herbal notes. Enjoy this spread on burgers and sandwiches or as a dip for veggies.

Buying large quantities of wholesale chimichurri just means you have more options for experimenting. Try using it in some of these suggested ways, and enjoy. For more information about buying chimichurri wholesale, contact a local supplier.
