Salsa Verde with Avocado

Good morning everyone,

Blech… brachytherapy week.  Everything smells terrible and tastes like nothing but the therapy will help my body rid itself of the cancer and will make it hard for the cancer to return so… I wanted to make a nice, simple, easy meals that are full of flavour for the family this week, without exhausting myself or overwhelming myself with strong aromas.

So we’re having black bean nachos with some pico de gallo and salsa verde.  I’ve included the higher fat version – with avocado, in the salsa verde because avocado has good fats and I need some extra energy stores this week.  I remember it being so delicious although today I can’t really taste it.

Salsa Verde with Avocado

4 tomatillos (small, green tomato like fruit found in many large supermarkets)
1/2 onion
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1 avocado
Salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 400F.  Rinse and dry the tomatillos.  Roast the tomatillos until cooked through and the colour begins to change.

Add the roasted tomatillos to a blender along with onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper and cilantro.  Mix until almost pureed.  Add the avocado to this mixture and pulse until well blended.
Easy peasy!
Until next time,
Peace and love,
