How to Make Salsa Verde

How to Make Salsa Verde

Posted on Monday, September 2, 2013 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

I’ve always been a fan of salsa verde – you know, that green, tangy, incredible salsa? But I don’t know that I could consider myself a true fan because, truthfully, I had no idea what went into it. I’ll be honest – I thought it was probably green tomatoes.

So it was a bit of an epiphany when I received a bunch of tomatillos in my CSA box and I thought, gee, those might make a nice salsa. A little bit of research, and I forehead-bopped. It’s not green tomatoes that make up salsa verde, sillyhead! It’s freakin’ tomatillos!

Vegetarian Onion Gravy

Vegetarians, rejoice! This 100% vegetarian gravy is exactly what you’ve been missing on Thanksgiving. It’s so easy to whip up a batch of this stuff. Just keep those saucy carnivorous mitts away from your gravy boat – meat eaters may prefer it over their own non-veggie-friendly gravy.

I can’t be the only vegetarian who’s suffered the lonely and tasteless holiday dinner fate of having to eat mashed potatoes with only a bit of salt and pepper and a sorry pat of butter. While everyone around you gleefully shoves down forkfuls of gravy-heavy potatoes… it’s horrible! Just horrible!

Okay, you know I’m exaggerating. But it does kind of suck a little. Gravy’s yummy, but I just can’t bring myself to eat it because of the whole meat thing.

That is… until now.
