for your long weekend

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.

Thanks for the tip...I subscribe to this mag and must've skipped past this recipe. I'll give it a go this weekend. Hope yours is a good one!

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.

Yummy! I'm putting this on my To Make list.

Definitely trying this method!!! Chopping up that stuff with my Pampered Chef chopper thing is murder on my hands and wrists, AND it's messy! This looks like perfection!

Kristen said...

LOVE this idea! I am going to give it a shot this weekend, too. I've been on a serious roasted vegetable kick lately and so this just seems natural. YUM!

lucky knitter said...

Definitely have to try this recipe! It looks delicious!

michelle said...

....how's about you just double that recipe and come on over for a Mexican beer or margarita (who am I kidding....just bring over a batch and let's have wine!) xox M

Jen said...

We just made salsa the other day by roasting the veggies first. I really like it that way!

Jennie said...

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!

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!

Marie said...

that was on my list to try so now i will! the may edf issue was particularly good to me - everything i made was awesome.

nicole said...

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.

Maryse said...

I looks really yummy!!!

Denise | Chez Danisse said...

I love this kind of thing. It's simple, totally within reach, yet somehow missed up until today. Thank you.

emily said...

Kelsey said...

Whenever I make salsa I think of our apartment in Foster City and our special salsa bowls we got in Narita. Lots of good times!

Poshyarns said...

Ooh, I am going to try it this weekend, sounds heavenly. But I have a question, what is broil? Does it mean roast in oven?

anunturi gratuite said...
