CHIMICHURRI RICE BOWL

CHIMICHURRI RICE BOWL
CHIMICHURRI RICE BOWL

"Chimichurri" is a wonderful word. Don't believe us? Say it out loud and you'll see! Not only is it a marvellous word, it's a phenomenally tasty sauce. Super fresh and zingy - a delight for the tastebuds. We decided to match the deliciousness of chimichurri with rice and vegan meat. This Chimichurri rice bowl is remarkably satisfying both for lunch and dinner. Give it a whirl, you won't be disappointed!
