I had a get together last night at my house, and in the midst of a hectic day, I needed to pull something together quick. But I also wanted something fresh that would allow me to use my abundance of produce from my CSA (community supported agriculture) share.
ANSWER: Tomatillo Salsa and Basic Hummus with fresh veggies. It was so, so good and super easy…so I figured it was worth sharing!
1 quart of fresh tomatillos
1 small red pepper
2-3 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1/2 lime
3 tablespoons of Cilantro
1 small tomato
Couple dashes of salt
Remove husk from tomatillos and rinse in warm water to remove sticky residue. Roast tomatillos and red peppers on 400 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on low to medium speed. (I like a bit of a chunky salsa, so adjust speed accordingly).
And that’s it! Besides the roasting (which is primarily hands off time), we’re talking 5 minutes tops for this recipe.
I served this with organic blue corn tortilla chips, but this would also be so delicious topped on eggs or in a black bean burrito.
For the hummus, check out my recipe here – – I just left off the avocado and jalapeno, and added a bit more lemon. To serve, I cut up fresh cucumber, celery and tomatoes. Easy, peasy.
