Put the olive oil into the blender jar. Set timer for 20 minutes and temperature on Medium. Once hot, add the onion, stirring frequently to sauté. Once the onion has softened, add about 1⁄3 of the tomatillos and the garlic and stir frequently. Once they are softened, repeat with the remaining thirds. Once the time expires and the vegetables are soft, add the remaining ingredients and blend on speeds 2 to 4 for about 1 minute, or until puréed. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
