Roasted Tomatillo Cilantro Sauce

Roasted Tomatillo Cilantro Sauce

Cilantro is one of my favorite ingredients, it goes so well with so many flavors. I do not often cook with tomatillo's, but they had some at the farmers market so I bought them and decided to make a chimichurri type sauce. I made a bunch so that I could try it on lots of different dishes. Check out my Instagram stories to see what else I put it on this week!  


  • 5-6 Tomatillo's
  • 1 Jalapeno Opit seeds if less spicy is desired
  • 4-5 Cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 bunch Cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 tsp Cumin


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    Skin the tomatillo's, garlic, and cut off the head of the jalapeno. Lightly coat with avocado or olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and salt. Place the garlic on the roasting pan wrapped in tinfoil. Place in the oven for 20-25 min- until you can see the colors changing. 

    While cooling, wash and remove the large stems from the cilantro. 

    Then place the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro and all other ingredients into a food processor or Vitamix. Blend or pulse on low until everything is combined. 

    AND enjoy!
