This quick and easy sauce is a must have in the fridge! All you need is a blender and some fresh plant-based ingredients to create this flavorful sauce to top any enchilada, taco, arepa, or whatever you choose. The next time you are at the store and you spot those green tomatoes with an outer husk (and you are questioning what they are) don’t be afraid to grab some and make this. You will be delightfully surprised at how delicious this is!
Yields 2 cups
1/2 cup vegetable broth
10 tomatillo, husk removed
Half of a medium red pepper
Half of a medium orange pepper
1 cup oyster mushrooms
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 clove of garlic
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1 Tbsp. siracha
Pinch of Vitacost Himalayan Pink Salt
Pinch of Spicely Organics Black Ground Pepper
- In a medium sauce pan, combine all above ingredients and turn to medium-high heat. Once liquid has come to a rolling boil, turn to medium-low heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tomatillos are tender.
- In a Vitamix blender, pour the hot mixture carefully into the blender and blend for 1 minute or until mixture is smooth.
- Pour sauce into a mason jar and serve or allow to cool and store in the refrigerator.
Chef’s tip: To spice this sauce up from a mild/medium heat profile, add half of a jalapeño pepper to the blender (seeds will make it more hot).
