How to Roast Tomatillos

Roasting tomatillos for salsas or sauces is very simple. Roasting is important to encourage the full flavor of the tomatillos. The easiest way is to roast under a broiler or in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 12 tomatillos
  • spray oil

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. eel off the outer brown skin that wraps the tomatillos and discard. Rinse the tomatillos and slice them in half.
  3. Slice the tomatillos in half through the horizontal center (not up and down) and arrange on a large baking dish. Spray with oil.
  4. Bake about 8 minutes, then flip the tomatillos. Bake another 5 minutes until skin side is blistering.
  5. Remove, cool and peel.

NOTE: The tomatillos will be very soft at this point, so peel directly over your mixing bowl. Also, if you prefer to bake instead of broil, preheat oven to about 400 degrees, then bake about 20 minutes. Then proceed. They will not char, but they will be just as good.
