our good friends were visiting this past week and brought us tomatillos from their garden. today I am roasting them and some red grape tomatoes we had lying around. mmm yummy.
tomatillos are part of the tomato family and are mostly grown in the western part of the country. once you peel back the leafy jacket, a sweet little green (sometimes with a purple hue) tomato is revealed.
spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and roast at 375 degrees for about 35-40 minutes until brown and carmelized.
mine came out of the oven not looking as pretty as they went in. in fact, they look like old spinach garbage mush in this photo. possibly because I didn't use enough olive oil.*but*, they are delicious. sweet and salty combined.
