Tasty Tuesdays: Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
I found this recipe on Pinterest { via Sara Waters } earlier this Summer and wanted to make it right away! The original recipe is from A Spicy Perspective (a very cool blog, by the way). You won't believe how easy it is to make!
- 2 ½ lbs. tomatillos, husked and rinsed
- 2 large onions
- 10 cloves garlic, peeled
- 4 jalapenos
- 2 Tb. vegetable oil
- 4 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup packed cilantro
- 3 avocados
- 1 lime (optional)
{ Look, the tomatillos match the dish towel! Ha, I did not plan that! }
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Husk the tomatillos and rinse. Peel and chop the onions into quarters. Place the tomatillos, onions, garlic and jalapenos on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil. Place in oven and roast for 15 - 20 minutes. The outsides will be slightly blistered when they are done.
3. Meanwhile, half the avocados, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh.
4. When the vegetables are done, remove from oven. Cut the jalapenos in half and scrape out the seeds. Discard seeds and stem.
5. Place HALF of the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos and garlic in a food processor { or blender; I don't have a food processor, so that's what I used and it worked just fine }. Pulse until mostly smooth. Place in large bowl.
6. Add HALF of the cumin, salt, cilantro and avocado. Pulse until the avocado is pureed into the mixture. Add to bowl. Repeat for remaining ingredients.
7. If desired, add lime juice to the mixture and stir to combine.
8. Divide salsa among containers. This is supposed to freeze very well, so that's what I did with most of mine. It will be nice to enjoy this salsa through the winter.

This salsa looks amazing! Tomatillo & avacado are two of my favorites. I'll have to add this to my "Need to Try" collection.
