This recipe was developed for us by north London vegan chef, Tantrem De Bastet. You can see more of his recipes on his site at Follow him on instagram: @vegantantrem.


Tomatillos are like little sour tomatoes with a distinct gooseberry smell and taste. Pronounced “Toma-Tee-Yo” , these fruit are so strange they feel like they should not exist, but I am so glad they do. This simplest of salsas can be easily turned into Pico de Gallo with the addition of chillies and coriander, so I have included that variation below. 




120g Tomatillos – finely chopped

¼ Red Onion – finely chopped

½ Lime – juice

1 tsp Cane Sugar

Salt and Pepper. 


For Pico de Gallo add:


1 Green Chillies – finely chopped

80g Coriander – finely chopped



Add the tomatillos and onion to a bowl.

Sprinkle with the sugar and salt and pepper, add the lime juice and mix.

Taste and season.
