New Recipe – Huevos Gauchos (Gaucho Eggs)
If you thought our Chimichurri’s only came out to play for the grill or BBQ, think again! Our products are so versatile you can use them as a marinade, condiment, dipping sauce, or a base for pretty much any type of recipe you like. In this series of recipes I will show you many different ways to enjoy your Don Gaucho products.
In this recipe I used our Spicy Chimichurri to ramp up the flavour in a hot hangover cure breakfast. This is how we started our Sunday this week…a breakfast of champions and really healthy too. Check out how we made it: (serves two people)
Don Gaucho Spicy Chimichurri
Half a red bell pepper
Half a yellow bell pepper
Half a green bell pepper
Half a white onion
6 button mushrooms
6 cherry tomatoes
Sliced wholemeal bread or flour tortillas
(Cup of tea optional!)
HOW I MADE IT
Chop the onion, peppers and mushrooms into small pieces and fry for 5 mins on high heat in a generous glug of olive oil until softened and well combined. Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters and add to the mix and fry for a further 3 to 4 mins until the mixture is equally softened and starting to look like more like a sauce…like the photo below. At this point, add two dessert spoons of Spicy Don Gaucho Chimichurri and stir well.
Turn off the heat and fry 4 eggs in a (separate) warm pan in a glug of olive oil, the lower the heat the better, take your time so the eggs dont get too crispy underneath and wobbly ontop. In the meantime, roughly chop the avocado and toast the bread (or toast the tortillas in a clean dry frying pan), spread the avocado on the toast and top with your warm pepper mixture. When your eggs are ready, place them ontop of the pepper mixture and sprinkle chopped corriander ontop.
DEEEEELISSSSSH…Huevos Gauchos!! (Inspired by Huevos Rancheros from Mexico).
I fried my eggs too fast, so they could be prettier – BUT still tasted amazing!
