Pan con Tomatillo

There are still some back deck days ahead... this is a simple way to highlight the vegetal flavor of tomatillos while staying refreshed and satisfied. Make sure you get that pan extra crispy because that crunch is so satisfying.

Ingredients

  • 16 medium tomatillos (about 1½ pounds), husks removed, rinsed, quartered
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 ciabatta loaf
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 2 small green tomatoes, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Flaky sea salt

Recipe

Toss tomatillos, kosher salt, and sugar in a small bowl. Gently massage until they feel soft and juicy. Cover and let sit at room temperature, tossing occasionally, until tomatillos have released some of their liquid, at least 4 hours and up to 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 300°. Holding a bread knife parallel to a cutting board, slice ciabatta in half. Slice each piece in half lengthwise, then cut each strip on a diagonal into about 4" pieces. Drizzle 3 Tbsp. oil over bread and rub each piece to evenly distribute oil. Place bread on a baking sheet and bake until browned all over and dried out and crisp, 60–75 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, transfer tomatillos to a food processor; leave juices in bowl. Pulse until finely chopped but not smooth (mixture should look pulpy with bits of skin). Transfer to a medium bowl; add garlic.

Spoon tomatillo mixture over toast, then drizzle some of the reserved juices over. Top with green tomatoes, if using; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

Do Ahead: Tomatillo mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
