by Sara Paul Raffel

A delicious summer soup. Recipe adapted from the blog "a couple cooks."


  • 12 Tomatillos
  • 2 Red onions
  • 2 JalapeƱo peppers
  • 2 Cups Cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • Olivee oil
  • Salt
  • Vegetable broth
  • Green onions
  • Goat cheese
  • Lime
  • 3 Cups Black beans, cooked
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 450F.

    Step 3

    Remove the husks from the tomatillos.

    Step 4

    Rinse to remove the sticky film on the skin, and pat dry.

    Step 5

    Roughly chop. This is all going to get pureed, so no need for pieces to be perfectly uniform.

    Step 6

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and throw on the chapped tomatillos.

    Step 7

    Add the onions, the jalapeno and the cherry tomatoes.

    Step 8

    Don't forget the garlic cloves.

    Step 9

    Add olive oil slowly. Stir well, so that it is coated evenly. Add a sprinkle of salt.

    Step 10

    Place in the oven and roast until golden, about 22 minutes. The tomatoes and tomatillos will release their juices. Stir every once in a while.

    Step 11

    When roasted, remove from oven, and place the entire contents of the pan in a blender (released juices and all). Add a cup or two of vegetable stock (depending on how thick you like your soup).

    Step 12

    Puree until very smooth. Add more veg stock if the soup is on the thick side.

    Step 13

    Return soup to the pan and add the black beans.

    Step 14

    Warm in the pot, and add salt to taste.

    Step 15

    Portion into bowls, and squeeze some lime on top.

    Step 16

    Sprinkle chopped green onion and some crumbly goat or sheep cheese on top. Enjoy!
