Roasted Salsa

I love this time of year when the last of the tomatoes come off the vine and football games grace the tv. My husband loves to grill on game days and this salsa is a great companion to meats and veggies as well as chips.

Recipe inspired by WomanCode, Alisa Vitti. To see a list of all the healthy recipes this book has urged me to creative cook, click here.


If you can add fresh oregano as well as fresh cilantro it will heighten the flavors of this salsa to the next level! Nothing beats fresh herbs.

If you’re making this during the Luteal or Follicular phases, try throwing some artichokes in the blender along with everything else.


This recipe has at least 2 of the recommended Ovulatory Phase foods, but it’s a great healthy topping during any phase.

  • peppers
  • you can add spinach to the blender as well
  • add corn after blending if desired

Leftovers

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted).
