you may be wondering what I am talking about. it is something that is new for us. we have never had this before till recently.
what is so addictive?
well, I will tell ya
Yep! that is it. the love addiction started when we went home to Florida for July 4th. I can not even really remember how it got started but once Lori and I had it we were hooked! almost like our love of hot foods lately.
it is so good. we have been putting it on everything.
we found a brand in the store that we have been using on our salads, flatbreads, sauerkraut, veggies … just about on anything.
than Lori and I realized – let’s make our own!
the amazing Katie had a recipe and that is where our today’s blog inspiration comes from.
the other day when we went to the farmers market we were thrilled to see local tomatillos.
so we grabbed some along with a few of the other ingredients like garlic, semi-hot peppers and onions. we already had on hand the greens and limes.
and we got to work.
Pure2raw inspired recipe: Spinach Salsa Verde
- follow Katie’s basic recipe (tomatillos, onions, garlic, cilantro, lime, sea salt)
- added in about a half pound of spinach
- used 2 semi-hot peppers (sorry I do not remember the name the farmer told me)
- and used lightly steamed white onions
the remaining ingredients we kept raw. though Katie’s recipe she did roast them. you can do it either way, the recipe is easy to make to your liking!
place all ingredients into a blender and blend till combined. we actually did ours in stages and added the spinach and cilantro last.
takes about 2-3 minutes to make.
makes about 3-4 cups of salsa.
these recipe was extremely easy to make! definitely planning on making it myself from now on. the one thing that we did not really like about the store bought one is that it contained sugar! so our homemade version does not. perfect
another great thing about this recipe is that the ingredient list is short (all natural wholesome ingredients) and is automatically gluten-free,vegan and can be easily made raw!
thanks Katie for the recipe inspiration! we are in love!
we are off to go enjoy our salsa verde. yes we are slightly addicted to it.
Twins Question: Have you ever had salsa verde? If so, do you make it yourself? Are you addicted to anything new lately? (doesn’t have to be food related)
till next time,
