Tomatillos can be a challenge for those not used to cooking with them. Share family Swift Johnson shares their favorite recipes in this Special Tomatillo edition of the Member Diary
Total Time: 15 min
- 1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatillos
- 5 fresh serrano chiles
- 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
- 2 teaspoons coarse salt
- Preheat broiler.
- Remove tomatillo husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. Broil chiles, garlic, and tomatillos on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 7 minutes.
- Peel garlic and pull off tops of chiles. Purée all ingredients in a blender.
- Salsa can be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
These are SO DELICIOUS as an appetizer. Lemony and fried and super tasty! Great served with marinara or any other sauce for dipping.
- Breadcrumbs or cornmeal
- Salt and pepper
- Mix salt and pepper into a cup or two of flour
- Whisk a couple of eggs
- Fill a small bowl or plate with breadcrumbs or cornmeal.
- Slice tomatillos into 1/4 inch slices
- Dip tomatillo slices in flour on both sides then shake off the excess. Then dip in egg on both sides.
- Finally, dip both sides in bread crumbs or cornmeal and fry in vegetable oil.
- Eat while hot!

This week we received:
- 1 head red leaf lettuce
- 1 bunch green beans
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1 quart blueberries
- 1 bunch radishes
- 1 bunch spinach
- 4 ears corn
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 summer squash
- 3 cucumbers
- 1 bunch of sage
We were going camping this weekend so we needed to strategize a bit in order to make sure we had a weeks worth of delicious lunches to bring to work, as well as 3 meals to contribute to the camping trip.
For lunch during the week, we made easy pita pockets filled with chicken breast, and thin slices of radishes, carrots and cucumber. Top it all off with homemade Goddess dressing- delicious and so easy!. Check out this neat trick I learned to help your pita keep it’s shape. Simply cut off a silver from the top then use the silver to wedge the pita open while it toasts. Voila! Life Hack!
Here is the recipe to make your own version of Goddess dressing at home:
2 tablespoons safflower or canola oil
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
1/2 cup tahini
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup roughly chopped scallions (about 2-3 big ones)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon plus a healthy dash of tamari (or whatever soy saucy kinda thing you roll with)
3 garlic cloves
some salt and pepper to taste
Put it all in a blender or food processor and whizz it until its smooth. Better make a double batch though, cause you might just drink it out of the bottle.
For our camping trip, we prepared in advance some whole wheat pesto pasta using ramp pesto that we had made last year and stored in the freezer. We served it with simply sauteed tomatoes, squash, carrots and green beans- a sort of rustic take on ratatouille. Continue reading
