One more way to enjoy those abundant summer tomatoes. Make these amazing roasted tomatoes part of your next antipasti tray. Or toss them with some pasta. Or use as a topping on grilled meat or fish. We recently enjoyed this as a topping on sauteed broccoli rabe. The possibilities are endless.
Rich tomato sauce without the addition of cream. How is that possible? Eggs. Can you believe it? They are mixed in at the last minute to create a creamy textured tomato sauce. Without a lick of cream. Really.
Slab pie. It’s the perfect crowd pleaser. Bring this to your next backyard barbecue. Your friends will thank you.
A fresh summery version of that all-time favorite …lasagna. A great way to use up those heirloom tomatoes.
Butter + lemon + capers = yummy. Add that combo to wild-caught grilled swordfish. That equals delicious. And you can so easily do this at home. Really.
Rich, nutty & flavorful. Pair this up with grilled fish or chicken. Or with roasted meat & vegetables. In the time it takes to heat the grill and cook the rest of your meal, this delicious side is ready.
Summer candy. Those mini heirloom tomatoes. You know the ones …Sun Golds, Cherokee Purples, Red Glories. Even the good old red grape tomatoes are extra delicious right about now.
Artisan bread. The crusty artful loaves that you see displayed in the finest French bakeries. Or in the bakery section of your local specialty food market.
Blueberries. Let’s envelop them in a cocoon of slightly tart lemon curd and slightly sweetened whipped cream. We’ll add some toasted coconut for crunch. Call in the troops. Dessert is ready.
Shrimp + Fennel + Tomatoes. Add a light flavorful broth with some diced potatoes and mild fish chunks for good measure. You now have the perfect summer supper. If you’re feeling ambitious, grill some sliced ciabatta. The smoky flavor and crunchy texture will be just the thing for soaking up that delicious juice.
There’s a wonderful restaurant in San Francisco where folks come from far away lands to enjoy the classics …Caesar Salad, Roast Chicken with Warm Bread Salad and the most amazing House-Ground Grass-Fed Hamburger on Grilled Rosemary Foccacia served with Zuni Pickles.
Squash blossoms. Those glorious golden blooms. Not only beautiful but delicious, too. Those edible flowers should be available to us this time of year …thanks to the summer squash and zucchini plants.
