Nope, not sweet by addition of white poison a.k.a. suga, but sweet by tomatillos. If you have never had them you are in for a treat. They are similar to tomatoes, but sweet n sour like a granny smith apple. Here is a recipe that adds them to one of my favorite breakfast carbs, grits!
1 lb tomatillos, husks removed
2 tbsp butter
1/4 yellow onion, chopped
1 serrano chile should you desire a little spice in the am
4 cloves garlic, minced (not pictured)
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
juice of half a lime
1 cup grits
2 cups milk (not pictured)
2 cups water
1 cup shredded cheese (not pictured)
salt n pepa
Wow I sucked at bringing all the ingredients to the photo op huh! Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook tomatillos for about 5 min to soften them up.
Bring another pot to a boil with the 2 cups of water and milk. Add the grits once boiling. Cook according to package directions.
Saute the onions andd garlic in a small pan. Look at this enemble.
Drain the tomatillos and let them cool for a few. Add the onions, garlic to a blender.
Add the tomatillos, seasoning, cilantro, serrano if using and lime juice.
Blend and pour the green goodness into the cooked grits.
Stir together. Serve warm with a sprinkling of cheese.
Honestly, I recieved a 50/50 response on this. I realize this recipe is not for everyone. I love grits and this was so yummy to me.
From Homesick Texan by Terry Fain. I gotta return this book to the library so there will a shortage of these for a bit.
