Prep & Cook Time:

55 mins

Recipe Tags: Hot Cold Vegetarian Vegan Vegetables Herbs Accompaniment Savoury Sauce Gluten Wheat Dairy Free Eggless peppers chilli chillis chilis chiles South American

Ingredients

6 large ripe Tomatoes
2 large Garlic Cloves, unpeeled
3 Jalapeño or Serrano Chillies
2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
Salt
2 tbsp freshly chopped Coriander (Cilantro)
 

Instructions

 

1. Heat a large heavy frying pan over a high heat until very hot. Add the tomatoes, garlic and chillies to the dry pan and cook for about 10 minutes, turning from time to time, until the skins are blistered and charred in places. As the ingredients will cook at different rates, remove them as and when they are ready. 

 

2. Once charred, peel the garlic, quarter tomatoes and remove the stems from the peppers then transfer all the vegetables to a blender and process until quite smooth. The black specs from the charred vegetables in the finished dish are a trademark of this salsa.


3. Heat the oil in the same frying pan until hot then gently add the tomato mixture, season with salt and cook over a medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the sauce has thickened.

 

4. Stir in the coriander. Serve hot or cold.
