Gardener's Feast Tamales - Tomatillo Salsa

Bean and goat cheese tamales and tomatillo salsa make a fast and fresh supper when you're too tired to cook (and Dancing With the Stars is about to start.)

Bean Goat Cheese Tamales - Tomatillo Sauce

Tomatillo Salsa

2 lbs fresh tomatillo, husked, rinsed and quartered
1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped
6 cloves cleaned garlic
3 jalapeno peppers
2 tbs fresh cilantro, largest stems removed
Splash of EVOO
Sprinkle of salt

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Toss all ingredients except cilantro, in a rectangular baking pan that will hold tomatillo in a single layer.
3. Roast 20 or 30 minutes until very soft, stirring once so they cook evenly.
4. Pour tomatillo slop into a blender.
5. Add cilantro.
6. Blend lightly.
7. Salt to taste.

The Gardener's Feast Tamales are a smooth blend of black beans cooked with epazote and amazing locally-produced goat cheese.  All natural, gluten free, no lard or trans-fat oils, no preservatives or food additives.

Both freeze beautifully.
