Short and easy post today. Made a simple pea and basil soup for dinner. (Although I'm not personally a fan of cooking with mint, you could pair the peas with mint to make the soup instead. Pretty classic combination.)
Tonight for dinner, I decided to try a fresh tomatillo salsa. I served it with a simple flour tortilla wrap (I filled it with fake chicken from Morning Star) and made grilled seasoned potatoes to round out the meal.
Fresh Tomatillo Salsa Ingredients 1 pound of tomatillos 1 clove of garlic (you can use more if you like a lot of garlic.) Salt, pepper, and cilantro to taste. (I tend to add a lot of cilantro, but some people find it a bit strong.) 1/4 to 1/2 of the juice from a lime A few dashes of hot sauce I added a pinch of sugar just to help balance the flavors, but this is optional. **You can also add a diced onion. Most people do when making salsa, but Laura and I don't like onions.
Directions 1.After removing the husks and rinsing the tomatillos, dry and quarter them. Place them on a baking sheet and broil them for a few minutes. (Allow them to become a bit charred.)
2.Remove from broiler and combine all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
So, today I decided to make some gnocchi. This was only the second time I've done it and they turned out better than the first attempt. I still need to watch a youtube video or something to figure out how in the fuck I'm supposed to make the little indentations the traditional way. Today I just opted for pressing down on them with a fork. haha Oh well. At least I got some type of ridges.
