I saw this recipe (click the colored words for link) in Cooking Light Magazine and thought to myself, "I don't know what a tomatillo is, but dang that looks good!"
I was talking to my mom on the phone as I was dicing up the tomatillos and telling her about the soup I was going to make and she said, "that sounds gross and I bet your little miss picky won't eat that. I don't think any kid would eat it". I said "well, I am going to give her cereal for dinner and if it turns out gross, I guess that is what I will eat too".
You see, sometimes you just have to try something new. I tend to cook the same 5 meals over and over again, so I am always looking for an interesting new dish to change things up. My great Aunt Mary used to say, "there is always the garbage can!" So I like to keep that as my cooking mantra too- well, that and "there is always cereal!"
This is how I made my version of the soup:
I took 3 small tomatillos chopped + 1 and 1/2 avocados + 1/4 large container of College Inn coconut curry chicken broth and put it in my cup for my immersion blender. (EVERYONE needs one of these!)
Then I poured it in a saucepan set on low heat, added another 1/4 container of coconut broth, 1/2 container of crab claw meat and poured in 1/3 container of heavy cream (I know it defeats the purpose of "Cooking Light", but I didn't have buttermilk!) I sprinkled it with Old Bay seasoning to taste.
Guess what?! It was delicious! And miss picky even had a spoon of it! (Then had a bowl of cereal!)
