Tomatillo means “little tomato” in Spanish and that’s essentially what it is. Small, firm and green with a lantern-type paper covering, most people miss them in the produce aisle. When roasted, the firm acidic meat of the tomatillo transforms into a sticky-sweet tomato caramel you'll want to serve with everything. That being said, the naturally occurring sugars in the salsa are better absorbed in our bodies by adding a healthy fat such as MCT or avocado oil.
