  • 15 - 20 plum tomatoes also called Roma, aim for about 2.25 lbs, halved
  • 1 large yellow sweet onion, cut in eighths
  • 3 jalapenos halved
  • 25 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 3/4 Cup cilantro leaves not packed
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Place tomatoes, onion, garlic and jalapenos (cut side up) on a lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast at 350 degrees for approximately 45 - 60 minutes (until onions are translucent and veggies have some char, 55 minutes was perfect for me).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Pulse in food processor with cilantro and a pinch or two of salt, until desired consistency is reached. (Be sure not to overload your processor, this may take two batches.)
  • Enjoy!
