Salsa Verde

  • 1 pound tomatillos
  • 2 each serrano peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic skin on
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable stock

Soy Curls

  • 1 Cup soy curls
  • 2 Cups water


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup onion diced
  • 1/3 Cup cilantro


Salsa Verde

  • Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil, silicone mat or parchment paper. Apply a thin layer of oil (I used 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil).
  • Cut up the tomatillos and place them on the sheet pan. Add the serrano peppers and two cloves of garlic still in the peel.
  • Place in the oven until everything is soft (mine took twenty five minutes).
  • Move to the top rack and broil until black spots start to appear (mine took five minutes).
  • Take out of the oven a let cool.
  • Place everything into a blender with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Blend until smooth.

Rehydrate the Soy Curls

  • Plce the soy curls in a bowl.
  • Cover with water for thirty minutes.
  • Squeeze out excess water.
  • Allow to air dry until needed


  • On medium heat add one Tablespoon of olive oil, 1/3 Cup diced onion and the rehydrated soy curls. Cook until the soy curls take on some color.
  • Add the salsa verde and simmer for three minutes. Taste and see if you need to add salt. Cook for two more minutes or five minutes in total.
  • Turn off the heat and add the cilantro. I used about 1/3 of a cup. Mix and let the residual heat cook the cilantro.
