This week at the market demo we'll be showing off salsa. The recipe features roasted tomatillos and combines them with roasted garlic and onions. Add in a little extra raw onion at the end to create quite the zip. Blend that with avocado and you've got a smooth chip accompaniment.
How To Make:
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa with Avocado
1# tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 sweet onion, peeled, cut in quarters
3 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
a dash of hot sauce
1-1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat: the oven to 450 degrees.
Rough Chop: 3/4 the sweet onion, 3 cloves of garlic, all the tomatillos and toss with splash of cooking fat. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes.
Prep the raw ingredients: Toss the remaining quarter of the onion into the food processor and squeeze the lime juice in as well. Pulse a couple times to start chopping. Then, prep the avocado and cilantro to be added at the end.
Food processes: the roasted veggies (once they've cooled off a bit) with the onion/lime juice. While it's spinning, sprinkle in the salt, cumin, and hot sauce. Toss in the avocado and cilantro and blend to your desired texture.
Enjoy and happy cookings!
