Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillos! First time we've gotten them from the CSA. This is our 9th year. I made salsa.

It was pretty good. Interesting flavor...I'm not used to tomatillo salsa.

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
1-2 T canola oil
0.75 lbs tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed in warm water
1/2 small onion, cut into small wedges
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced
salt and pepper to taste
small handful cilantro
1 lime

Slice tomatillos in half. In a large rimmed baking sheet (lined with foil if you are too lazy to clean, and I am), coat foil with oil. Place tomatillos cut side down. Toss in garlic, onions, and jalapeno. Roast at 425F for 10 min. Stir. Roast another 10 min. Remove from oven and let cool.

In food processor, puree roasted veggies, lime juice, salt, pepper, and cilantro. Serve with chips.

I love tomatillo salsa. I have never come accross an easy recipe until today though! I hope the magic bullet can stand in for the food processor that I am lacking. I would love to add this to wraps and salads!
