I bought a box of ripe roma tomatoes with a plan in mind that did not eventuate. They sat there making me feel guilty every time I walked past. “Later…soon…too busy now” I mentally said to them. Finally I decided to tackle them. Sliced in half, sprinkled with salt, pepper and herbs de Provence. A tiny drizzle of olive oil and into the oven for a long, slow cook. They are so delicious I ate four of them just while packing them into a container. They are so delicious that I don’t want to just mush them up to make tomato sauce or passata. What can I do with them? Inspiration needed please!
I used some for my lunch today. Cooked up some gluten free pasta. Drained the water when the pasta was cooked and threw in a few tomato halves. Squashed them with a fork as I stirred them around. Added a finely chopped chilli (because I can’t help myself) and a few basil leaves from the garden. Sprinkled with a little grated parmesan. Really nice. Solved my dilemma of what to cook for dinner tonight. But I will still have tons of oven roasted tomatoes left so I need your suggestions…soon!
