for your long weekend

Friday, May 27, 2011

Okay. This way of making salsa is new to me, so I just had to share.
The recipe was in the newest Everyday Food, June '11. Simple, fast and oh, so good. I've made it three times and each time used a different amount of tomatoes and onions. I think it is one of those recipes where you don't have to be specific on the amount of the ingredients and it will turn out great.
So, just put tomatoes (2-6 medium/large), a cut onion (or 1 1/2) 3 jalapeno peppers and 3-5 garlic cloves, unpeeled, on a baking sheet. Broil for about 6 minutes, rotate veggies and broil for another 6-8 minutes. (I take out the garlic after the first 6 minutes.) Remove from oven and let cool.
Remove the really charred bits (or not) and toss everything into the food processor or blender. (Except for the garlic skins and stems from the jalapenos. You may want to use less of the seeds from the jalapenos depending on how spicy you like it.) Stir in some chopped cilantro and juice from a lime. If you do not have a lime you can use about 2 TBLS white vinegar. (My friend, Kelsey, taught me that trick.)
Serve.

This weekend.
You won't be sorry.

  3. This must be delicious.
    It looks a lot like something I make with aubergines.
    The idea of broiling it is great. I usually cook it.
    Will try broiling it this weekend.
    Thanks for sharing.

  14. I've been reading your blog for awhile now, but I've never commented before!

    I saw your pictures of the salsa ingredients and I thought, that looks familiar. I love that magazine too and have made the roasted salsa recipe twice already because I like it so much! I hope y'all like it too!

  15. I love roasted salsa, and I think the parchment paper under the tomatoes is a great idea! Thanks for reminding me how much I love this as tomato season approaches. I am searching now for more heart healthy recipes, and this will certainly fill the bill!

  21. Genius!

    In my experience, most veggies become ambrosial when roasted in the oven! I made roasted broccoli the other day (tossed in olive oil, fleur de sel, lemon and garlic) and it was a revelation.
