There is little room in my repertoire at this time of year for dishes that don’t include tomatoes, but this week I kept it pretty simple.
I tried a new recipe for roasting tomatoes. I roasted them for 2 hours at a low temperature (300 degrees), which didn’t dry them out completely but intensified everything about them. I snacked on them all week, and also put them through a food mill for sauce. They will definitely become a habit, along with the fresh tomato sandwiches I’ve been eating for lunch every day. This won’t stop until September.
An irresistible way to use the freshest tomatoes.
Tomatoes make a great base for a luxurious summer risotto.
Tomatoes and summer squash make for delicious taco fillings.
A tomato-centric Greek salad that is substantial enough for lunch or a light supper.
This method of roasting won’t dry out the tomatoes completely but will intensify everything about them.
