Pan-Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde

I love roasted tomatillos! This salsa is whiz bang easy to whip up, doubles & triples well & have survived freezing well too. This dry pan roasting is way easier than the usual under the broiler method I have used for a hundred years - thanks www.herbivoracious@gmail.com ! I leave out the cilantro & oregano if freezing - seems better to add them in fresh when reheating with a dab of oil in the saucepan. Smoky chipotles or fresh jalapenos also do well - use what you got!

ingredients

directions

  • Heat a large dry frying pan over medium-high flame. Add the tomatillos, garlic and chili peppers. Cook about 4 minutes on one side, then flip everthing and go another 4 minutes, until the tomatillos are quite soft. Remove the chilis and garlic sooner if they are starting to get dark (they get bitter if burned).
  • Puree the vegetables along with the onion, salt, olive oil, cilantro & oregano in a blender until you get a smooth even texture. Stir in the lemon juice 1/2 T at a time - to taste.
  • Strain and serve or chill until serving time.
