1/2 pound tomatillos—husked, cored and quartered
3 garlic cloves, lightly smashed and peeled
1 jalapeño, stemmed and halved
1 leek, white part only, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 Hass avocados—peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 425°. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeño and leek with the oil and spread in a single layer. Roast the vegetables until lightly charred and softened, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a blender and let cool.
Add the avocados, cilantro, sugar, cumin and 1/2 cup of water and puree until smooth. Add the onion, oregano and lime juice and pulse once or twice until incorporated. Transfer the salsa to a bowl and season with salt. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
The avocado-and-tomatillo salsa can be refrigerated overnight.
