This Roasted Salsa recipe is my family’s very favorite salsa recipe! It’s incredibly easy and super healthy. Only a few steps to a great-tasting salsa!
I have a life-changing recipe to share with you today. Do you like salsa? We happen to LOVE salsa at our house. Especially fresh, homemade salsa made from roasted veggies.
Here’s another question, have you ever roasted vegetables under your broiler and then blended them up to make salsa? OMG. You guys. It’s life changing… I swear!
It brings much bigger, deeper flavor from roasting the veggies before you blend them up. Sooooo much more flavor then just cutting them up and throwing together. I promise.
Plus, it’s really easy. Methinks it’s even easier than classic salsa. Why? The only thing you have to cut, is the onion in half! That’s it! Everything else you leave whole and toss onto a cookie sheet. Roasted it all on the same cookie sheet, together.
Broil until the skins of the veggies begin to get that charred look and that amazing roasted smell. Blend it all up in a food processor or blender, serve and enjoy! I love this easy roasted salsa and hope you will too. It’s the perfect fresh summertime snack!
- 10 roma tomatoes
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 shallot
- 1 sweet onion
- 2 jalapeños (or more if you like it spicier)
- 1 tsp. cumin
- ½ tsp. salt (or more, for taste)
- ⅛ tsp. pepper
- ¼ of a lime, squeezed
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro (or more, if desired)
- Heat up your broiler on your oven. Place tomatoes, garlic (with the peels on), shallot (with the skin on), onion (peel and cut in half) and whole jalapeños on a cookie sheet. Place under broiler.
- I like to rotate the veggies periodically so they get equally cooked. When skins begin to char, pull cookie sheet out of oven. Be careful not to burn the garlic! It should take about 10-15 minutes.
- When finished, let the vegetables cool down then peel the garlic skins and shallot skin off. Using a food processor or blender (I used my Vitamix), blend all the vegetables together to the consistency of your liking.
- Add cumin, salt, pepper and lime juice. Stir in cilantro. Taste and add extra seasonings if necessary. Enjoy!
