Total Time40 mins
Servings: 4


  • 1 lb Tomatillos
  • 2 Medium jalapeno peppers
  • 3-4 cloves Fresh garlic, peeled
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil, extra virgin
  • 4 Green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup Fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp Ground cumin
  • 2 tsp Dried oregano
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Honey, optional


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.
  • Husk tomatillos and cut in half. Arrange tomatillos in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, along with whole jalapeno peppers and garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and toss gently to coat.
  • Place baking sheet in pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes.
  • Once cool enough to handle, cut jalapeno peppers in half and remove seeds before transferring the roasted veggies to a blender or food processor. Add green onion, cilantro, lime juice, ground cumin, and oregano. Pulse until ingredients are combined, but the mixture is still a little chunky.
  • Taste and add a drizzle of honey to sweeten, if desired. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately or freeze for later use. Enjoy!
