Recipe: Roasted Tomatillo-Chayote Soup

Roasted Tomatillo-Chayote Soup with Jumbo Shrimp
Jumbo shrimp adds complexity to this dish from the Hispanic Kitchen.

 

This flavorful roasted tomatillo-chayote soup is perfect for crisp fall weather.

My inspiration for this recipe came from the half bushel of tomatillos I was given by a friend, and the cool fall like weather we have been having. My experiences with cooking have been exclusively to make salsa verde, one of my favorites! I tell people who are unfamiliar with tomatillos, that they can cook them like if they were tomatoes, only green and slightly more tart. So for almost a week straight, I found myself adding tomatillos to new recipes and to the old standby salsa recipes that I love so much.

One thing I would like to learn this fall and winter is canning. I have a small kitchen and think it may be a bit challenging, but I won’t let that stop me from trying something new. If you have not tried tomatillos, I suggest using them in a salsa first, then adding them to some of your favorite recipes that call for tomatoes. Have fun!
