Roasted Garlic and Tomatillos

IMG_6752

I guess you probably couldn’t call this a recipe.  I’m really just showing you the easy way to roast garlic and tomatillos so you can use them in a bunch of really, really great recipes.

Like, recipes I may or may not be posting tomorrow or later this week.

*hint hint hint*

(Check. It. Out.)

It’s super easy to do, and I like to do it on the grill because they get nice and charred and have a really nice smoke-y flavor that the broiler doesn’t always bring out.  You can also roast peppers this way!

Ingredients:

Garlic bulbs

Tomatillos

Olive oil

Preheat your grill to medium.  Alternatively, you could roast in the oven at 350* F.  Cut the top part of the garlic off so that the garlic can pop out when it’s all nice and roasted!  Cut the tomatillos in half horizontally.  Place the garlic on a piece of tin foil and drizzle with olive oil.  Wrap up.  Grill for about 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, spray the grill with cooking spray and place tomatillos on the grill.  Let them char until they blacken and soften slightly.  Flip them over and char the other side.  To roast in the oven, place the garlic in for 30-45 minutes.  Roast tomatillos for 15 minutes on each side, and then turn on the broiler and let them char until desired doneness.  Use them in salsa, soup, chili, or any other favorite recipe!

So easy!  You can also do this with peppers.  Just char them like you char the tomatillos!
