Roasted Salsa! Homegrown Tomatoes Galore!

It is tomato season! I love them! Homegrown tomatoes are soooo tasty- I wish they grew year round- once you’ve had one, you will just wince when you have to buy one at the grocery store. Lucky for me, I am not having to buy them at the grocery store right now. As a matter of fact, the CSA has put a bunch in the veggie box lately and my neighbor brought over 5-6 too!

With all these tomatoes on hand, I decided to make some salsa- but, I wanted a little twist. So, I decided to roast the tomatoes, peppers and onions to create a little deeper flavor. So, I washed the tomatoes and peppers. I cut the peppers in half and the tomatoes into wedges. I used a spoon to remove the seeds from all of them. I tossed them in olive oil and spread them on a tin-foil lined cookie sheet. I broiled them on hi for 10 minutes until they were getting nice and brown.

I scrapped it all into the food processor and blended it then added it to about 1/4 cup of cilantro, 1 teaspoon of cumin and 1-2 tablespoons of minced garlic. I sprinkled a little salt. This is tasty! It is so tasty in fact, that I was too busy eating it to remember to take a final product picture! Now, you may like it a little more spicy, add hotter peppers or a dash of your favorite hot sauce to heat it up to your liking.
